Spice up my breasts! [Jan. 16th, 2008|03:25 pm]

[Current Mood |curiouscurious]

I have split chicken breasts thawing for dinner and I'm feeling so bleh and uninspired. What can I do to jazz them up? I was just planning on oven baking them. Any hints?

mmmm Breasts.....lol

You might want to add a little garlic and oil to a pan...chop up that breast, cut up some veggies, a little wine, fresh herbs and a bit of hot pepper.

you stole my idea, i was going to suggest pesto and mozzarella, i'm going to fix that tomorrow night. (recipe here: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Pesto-Cheesy-Chicken-Rolls/Detail.aspx)

another thing i like to do is to sear the breasts with a little butter or olive oil w/garlic in a really hot pan before sticking them in the oven.

I like all of these pesto ideas, but I don't have the stuff to make it and I had to take m igraine drugs, so am in no state to drive. I'll hang out to these suggestions though!

I may make the "fake" oven fried chicken as I have the ingredients.

I know it sounds gross, but you can use a jar of orange marmalade and some water, and bake it in the mixture.
It's actually pretty darn good.

Otherwise, a small bit of pesto, some mozzarella and some italian spices.
Goos stuff, too. :)

That doesn't sound too gross, but alas, I have no orange marmelade. I have about every spice known to man though.

Ok, a couple tablespoons of butter/margarine or applesauce (for lower cal). Water in the pan, but just a bit, helps keep the meat moist.

Spice with a little garlic, lemon, oregano, and s&p .
You can add other italan spices as you see fit. Good stuff.

Bake with a foil tent over pan; keeps juices in.

This is how I make my bake chicken extra tasty.

I thaw them out, typically chicken breasts with no bones and no skin. I mix in a bowl two to three egg whites depending on the amount of chicken I will be cooking, some tablespoons of either fat free dressing or low fat dressing. I whip that up nice and good. In another bowl I mix Italian Seasonings, crushed Cheddar and Jack (or any other flavor you want) Cheez-Its, garlic powder, pepper, seasoning salt, etc. Once that is all mixed up, I set up an assembly line beginning with the chicken in the sink and ending with the aluminium foil lined baking sheet. I wash the chicken off and squeeze off excess liquid. I dip into the egg mixture, once covered, I dip and completely cover in the dry mixture. Then I place on baking sheet. It is my own Shake n Bake mixture I suppose.

Bake as usual.

I know that you won't be making dinner at this time tonight, but at least you will have this for the future.

Yum. I usually don't have any Italian dressing mix on hand, but I should get some!

Just to make sure I was straight forward on that because I don't know if I was. It is Italian Bread Crumbs Seasonings that I use in the dry mixture with the Cheez its.
