  1. I like to get chicken breast or tenderloins, crush up some of your favorite potato chips. I like to use salt and pepper chips. Then dip the chicken in ranch dressing for kind of a binder then in the chips and bake in the oven. I can’t remember at what temp or for how long but if you cooked chicken in the oven before then you should know.

  3. For a cold dinner, I’ve made the following:
    Chicken – 2 cups cooked & chopped
    Colored rotini noodles (1 bag cooked)
    Black olives – 1/2 – 1 cup sliced (or chopped)
    Italian dressing – 1/4 to 1/2 cup
    Oregano, Italian seasoning, salt & pepper to taste.
    Optional: onions, tomatoes, green pepper.
    This is also good with spaghetti noodles as well.

  4. In a glass pan combine chicken with a can of veggies and gravy. Then mix up biscuits and put on top of chicken mix. Bake at 400 degree for 12-15minutes. Yummy.

    Cook up some fried rice and chicken. Add in scrambled egg, optional.

    Chicken and long grain and wild rice.

    Make chicken noodle soup with carrots, onions, and celery. Use chicken brooth.

  5. you can stew the chicken by browning it and cooking it covered with a little water. Add whatever you like. Do you have a can of tomatoes, or cream soup? ..or you can just use the drippings to make a gravy.

  6. Here’s a fabulous all purpose Chinese style marinade that works great on any kind of meat (beef, pork, chicken (esp. chicken wings), lamb). Side dishes: steamed rice & stir fried bok choy or Napa Cabbage.

    Chinese Marinade

    1 C. low sodium soy sauce
    1/2 tsp. sugar
    1/2 C. of chopped green onions
    4 garlic cloves minced finely
    1 tsp of toasted sesame oil

    NOTE: You can certainly increase or decrease the amount of this marinade or any of it’s ingredients to suit your taste. Also, the volume depends on how much meat you intend to marinate.

    Place your chicken (in this case) into a large ziploc bag. In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients and stir very well making sure the sugar has dissolved. Pour marinade over the chicken, press out all of the air as you seal it. Refrigerate and marinate for about 2 hours. About 30 min. before cooking, remove the chicken from the fridge to get closer to room temp. At this point you can cook it just about any way: bake, broil, grill or (this IS the best…deep fry…wow! If you make this marinade and apply it to deep fried chicken wings…you’d better make alot! Trust me on this one…they go fast.) .

  7. This is one of my favorite chicken dishes….and so easy to prepare:

    Crockpot Salsa Chicken and Rice
    Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast – 1 Large Breast
    1 C Salsa
    1 1/2 c. Long Grain Brown Rice
    1 Can Fat Free, Reduced Sodium Chicken Broth
    Green pepper, as much as desired (I used 1/2 c.)
    Onion (optional)
    Put all except rice in a cockpot for 6-8 hours. Add rice and cook another 2-3 hours. Serve by itself or with refried beans. Makes 4-5 cups of rice/chicken mix. Can add more chicken breast if you want to go a little heavier on the chicken.
    Number of Servings: 4

    1/8 teaspoon black pepper

    Combine first 4 ingredients in a zip-top plastic bag; add chicken. Seal and marinate in refrigerator 3 hours or overnight, turning occasionally. Preheat oven to 350°. Remove chicken from bag; discard marinade. Place chicken in a single layer on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until chicken is done.
