Ok - I need some new ideas for what to do with chicken. We often:
*grill it w/a tumeric rub
*cut it into stir frys
*broil it
*bake it w/a spelt/spice coating
*make it into curry (variations inc. sweet w/currants and raisins, spicy w/cayenne and paprika, mild with curry paste and coconut milk, and add-ins inc. garbanzos, tomatos, zucchini, eggplant (sauteed or steamed and seasoned), peas, green/string beans, broccoli florets, carrot rounds, grated veggies, actually just about every type of veg. except the really sid-dishey ones like artichokes and brussle sprouts)
*Pad Thai chicken
*Chicken w/black bean sauce
*Lemon/zesty chicken (kind of like sweet and sour, but less prep intensive, equally flavorful)
*chicken Parm.
*Chicken and pasta of various sorts
*drumsticks versus breast done any or all of above...
then the soups, stews and casseroles, which I'm not including here only because they sort of no longer are just a chicken thing, but a whole other beast, really...

Can you tell we eat a lot of chicken? We support free range chicken farmers the world over in our home. And darned proud of it :lol Anyway, got a creative way to cook up the pecker? Let me know!!! I'm dairy and wheat free (for those who don't know) so please, if it takes dairy, can it be adapted??? Thanks! Andy

ps: The only thing Idon't love is chicken salad...

Sunday Dinner Chicken

Okay, my mom does this, so I don't have the exact recipe perse...

Fry up some onion and celery (and mushroom?) in plenty of oil to not quite done-ness. Dump the chunks but not the oil out of the pan into a bowl or something, and bread your chicken parts (she uses a flour, salt and pepper mix; maybe spelt or rice?) and fry them in that yummy oil. Just enough to brown the outsides, chicken will still be raw inside. Lay it in a baking pan, dump the onion/celery over it, cover, and bake (how long? how hot? dunno. If you cook a lot of chicken you can probably wing it [hehehehe. wing it.] ).

If you're my mom, serve with lumpy mashed potatoes and microwaved canned peas. Fruity jello with canned fruit chunks for dessert. Mmmmm.

MMmmm that's like a TV dinner w/o the plastic tray!

Chicken - 350 deg. for 40 min usually works on boneless pieces. Tenders a little faster, thick breasts a bit longer.

It's like TV dinners every night at Mom's house! :rofl Except the spaghetti nights (Mmm. Ragu) and Hamburger Helper, and now she's discovered those godawful casserole-in-a-box things. Can you tell I've been trying to get her to cook/eat better for years? :roll
