Cooking Whole Chicken Breasts
The key to livening up chicken breasts is the flavor. Use a breading or crust (like Parmesan) or marinate to your heart’s content! Tasty marinade ideas include teriyaki, your favorite fruit sauce (citrus or raspberry are both great!). A simple addition of tomato sauce and cheese also adds great flavor.
You can saute, bake or broil your chicken breasts. To saute, use a heated pan with hot oil and saute for about 3 minutes on each side or until opaque and cooked through. To bake, place chicken breasts in an oven-proof pan and bake in a 350-degree oven for 30 minutes. To broil, place chicken breasts in the broiler for 5 minutes per side or until opague and cooked through.
Using Chopped Chicken Breasts
Chop up chicken breasts and bake them into a calzone or add them to a pizza. Use chopped chicken breasts on salads (toss with buffalo sauce for a buffalo chicken salad!) or incorporate them into your pasta dish. However you decide to use your chicken, change it up from your norm!
