I am looking for some good chicken recipies. Can be baked, broiled, boiled, fried etc.
I like beer can chicken. 1/2 can beer (you could even use soda). I coat the outside of the chicken with whatever I'm in the mood for, like lemon pepper, coriander seed, dill weed etc. I also put some garlic and additional spices in the beer can. I use a store bought stand to hold the beer can, and then you slide the chicken over top. This can be done in the oven or on the grill. Usually takes an hour and a half or so. I put in a thermometer and cook until internal temp is 165 degrees. ENJOY!!!
This is very easy and so delicious you will be tempted to 'drink' the juices from your plate!
Easy Gourmet Chicken
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/3 cup olive oil
1/2 cup apricot jam
1/3 cup capers + a little juice
1/3 cup Spanish olives, drained and sliced
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white wine
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
5 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and pepper chicken breasts and brown lightly in olive oil - about 4 minutes per side. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over chicken in a casserole dish. Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes.
I second the beer can chicken, I just made it for lunch and it was quick,easy and delicious. I had left over homemade basil pesto and rubbed the chicken inside and out. The only thing I'd say negatively is be careful with the timing. It cooked much faster than I expected! Enjoy Gina
Marlen posted this a few years back - really good!

LEMON & ROSEMARY CHICKEN (serves 6)
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 tsp rosemary leaves, fresh or dried
4 TBL olive oil
1/3 cup dry white wine
2/3 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup bread crumbs
Parsley & lemon slices for garnish
Place chicken breasts between 2 piece of waxed paper. Pound each breast to 1/4" thickness with a mallet (or the bottom of a heavy saucepan.) Cut the flattened pieces into halves or thirds. Coat each piece w/bread crumbs.
Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a 10" fry pan. When oil is hot, place 1/2 of the chicken pieces in oil in the pan & sprinkle 1/2 of the rosemary leaves over the chicken. Brown the chicken until a light golden brown. Remove & drain on a paper towel. Repeat with the other half of the chicken & rosemary leaves.
Pour off excess oil from the pan, being careful not to remove the browned rosemary leaves & chicken left on the bottom of the pan. Return immediately to the heat & add lemon juice & wine to the pan. Stir with a whisk to loosen the leavings on the bottom of the pan. Cook over medium heat until the sauce is reduced by 1/3.
Place the chicken on a platter & pour 1/3 of the sauce over the chicken pieces & serve the remaining in a pitcher on the side. Garnish w/lemon slices & parsley. Good served with rice or pasta.~~Of Tide & Thyme

Easy Cheesy Chili Chicken
2 T extra virgin olive oil
2 T chopped fresh cilantro, plus a few whole leaves for garnish
1 T chili powder
1 T ground cumin
2 tsps kosher salt (I use about ¼ tsp)
1 garlic clove, chopped
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (I use 1/16 tsp)
(I squirt some fresh lemon juice in it at this point)
(I also sprinkle some Adobo Seasoning from Penzeys)
2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 4 halves)
¼ cup julienned green bell pepper - and some red bell pepper too
2 T diced red onion
1 medium plum tomato, cored & diced (about ¼ cup)I use more!
4 oz shredded Colby Jack cheese (I use that shredded Mexican 4 cheese blend)
Preheat oven to 400. Line sheet pan with aluminum foil.
Whisk together the oil, chopped cilantro, chili powder, cumin, salt, garlic, pepper & cayenne (plus lemon juice & Adobo seasoning) in a bowl; add the chicken & toss to coat.
Transfer the chicken to the foil-lined baking sheet & arrange the green/red bell peppers, onion and tomato over each. Roast until the largest piece is just cooked through, and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part reads 165 F, about 20 minutes (I just roast for 20 minutes)
Remove chicken from the oven and immediately top with the cheese. Transfer the chicken to a platter & garnish with fresh cilantro leaves & lime wedges. Serve as the cheese melts.
Can use a little less or low fat cheese but author states it needs the cheese.

Easy Italian Chicken
4-6 chicken breasts
1 very large tomato
1 large bottle Italian dressing
Grated Parmesan cheese
Place chicken in baking dish. Pour Italian dressing over the top. Cut up tomato to bite size pieces and place on top of chicken. Add cheese. Bake at 350 for at least an hour (less for boneless) or until juices run clear. Serve with white rice and pour "juice" over rice.
This is the basic recipe. I cut my chicken into thirds, sprinkle a little fresh lemon juice and either fresh or dried herbs over the Italian dressing along with a little garlic powder. I serve it with vermicelli. This is a great make ahead recipe as you can prepare everything except the cheese the night before. Just before placing in the oven, sprinkle the cheese over the ingredients.
SPICY FRIED CHICKEN (my version of Ming Tsai's)
1-1/2 lbs. skinless boneless chicken breasts, cut into thirds
1 pint of buttermilk.
1/8 cup Sambal Oulek
1 tablespoon garlic, finely minced
1/2 tablespoon ginger, finely minced
1 tablespoon honey
1/8 cup naturally brewed soy sauce (I use less sodium soy sauce)
1/2 tablespoon coarse ground black pepper
1 lemon, juiced
1 package panko bread crumbs
A sprinkle of dried red pepper flakes
1/2 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1/2 tablespoon cumin
Salt for seasoning
Canola oil for frying
In a large bowl, mix together the buttermilk, sambal oulek, garlic, ginger, honey, soy, black pepper and lemon juice. Mix chicken in the bowl and let marinate at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
In another large bowl, mix together the panko, red pepper flakes, paprika, sesame seeds and cumin.
Pull the chicken out of the marinade and season lightly with salt. Place chicken in panko bowl and completely coat the chicken. Heat oil to 350 degrees and fry until brown. Drain on paper towels and season again lightly with salt.
I like to serve with wedges of lemon (like wienerschnitzle!).
You can buy Sambal Oulek at a Thai market - it's extremely hot! Also can get the sesame seeds and a package of Panko at a Thai market.
I think it's best to let chicken sit in buttermilk overnight. Really tenderizes the chicken. (I even poke holes in chicken to help absorb the buttermilk).
I just shake the red pepper flakes over the Panko - no idea how much I use but I do like it spicy.
Here is one from the Food Network. I made the chicken and the pasta dishes. Both were great and easy.
Serving this for GS's birthday dinner. He requested that I prepare it, just for him :o)
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
4 teaspoons taco seasoning mix
1 cup salsa
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons sour cream (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C)
Place chicken breasts in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle taco seasoning on both sides of chicken breasts, and pour salsa over all.
Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 25 to 35 minutes, or until chicken is tender and juicy and its juices run clear.
Sprinkle chicken evenly with cheese, and continue baking for an additional 3 to 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Top with sour cream if desired, and serve.
I'll add a couple more to the mix. Very easy and delicious!

3-4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cooked and sliced
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
1/4 c slivered almonds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Melt butter or margarine in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir in flour; add chicken broth and stir until thick. Then stir in ¼ c parmesan, cream, sherry or wine, salt and ground black pepper. Stir until cheese melts and mixture is thickened. Remove from heat.
Place broccoli crosswise in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Pour 1/2 of the cream sauce over the broccoli and top with chicken slices, pour remaining sauce over the chicken slices. Sprinkle top with 1/2 c parmesan and slivered almonds.
Bake 30 minutes at 350F, then broil 5-8 minutes to brown top. Serve hot over rice or orzo pasta.
I'll hang my head in shame for this one because of the COC Soup, but what the heck....it's good!

3 lb(s) Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 cup(s) Flour, plus 1 tablespoon
1 Tbsp Salt
2 tsp Black pepper
2 tsp Italian herb seasoning
1 lb(s) Penne pasta
1 Tbsp Garlic, chopped
1 Red pepper, julienne cut
1/2 cup(s) White wine
1/2 lb(s) Whole leaf spinach, stemmed
12 oz Heavy cream
1 cup(s) Parmesan cheese, grated
Preparing the Chicken:
- Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, salt, black pepper and Italian herb seasoning in a shallow dish.
- Dredge chicken in the mixture, shaking off any excess.
- Saute the chicken in batches, in a large, nonstick, ovenproof skillet - with enough oil to coat - over medium-high heat for about two to three minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crisp.
- When finished, transfer the ovenproof skillet to a preheated oven at 350 degrees F. Cook for approximately 15 minutes or until cooked through and the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.
Preparing the Pasta:
- Cook pasta al dente (or according to package instructions).
- Drain and set aside until needed.
Preparing the Sauce:
- While the pasta is cooking, heat 1/2 to 1 fluid ounce of oil in a sauce pan. Add the garlic and the red pepper and cook for approximately one minute.
- Slowly add remaining one tablespoon of flour and stir to combine.
- Next add the white wine and bring to a boil for about one minute. Add the spinach and the cream and bring to a boil. The sauce is done cooking when the spinach becomes wilted. Complete by stirring in the parmesan cheese.
Preparing Tusacan Garlic Chicken Entree:
- Partly coat the pasta with the sauce, transfer to a large bowl (or individual dishes) and then top with the chicken, the remaining sauce and extra parmesan cheese. Serve and enjoy.

½ C oil
1 C cider or apple vinegar
3 tsp salt
1 tsp bell's poultry seasoning or sage
my husband says that cold, this is even BETTER than the above, which was his absolute favorite for years!
Algerian Roasted Chicken -- Lars--based on recipe by Chef Farid Zadi
1 whole chicken
4 cloves of garlic
1-1/2 tbsp Kosher salt
1 teaspoon of sumac
1/2 teaspoon of sesame seeds
1/2 tsp coriander seeds
1/2 tsp fenugreek
3/4 tsp cumin
3 tablespoons of butter, room temperature
1 tbsp minced Thai basil (or 1/2 tsp fennel)
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
extra herbs, 1 tsp each minced fresh oregano and basil, optional
4-5 sprigs of thyme
Start charcoal for outdoor barbeque, using large chunks of mesquite wood and charcoal
Place the chicken in a roasting pan with a rack. Slide your fingers under the breasts to separate the skin from the meat, turn the chicken over and do the same with the thighs.
Mash the garlic with 1-1/2 tablespoons of salt in a mortar and pestle or finely chop the garlic and incorporate the salt into it with the side of your knife or back of a spoon. Add the sumac, sesame seeds, coriander seeds, fenugreek seeds, and cumin and mix to pulverize the seeds. Add butter and basil and combine to mix. Tuck pieces of the butter into the "pockets" under the skin.
Squeeze the juice of one lemon all over the chicken, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, sprinkle freshly ground black pepper. Season the cavity with pepper, tuck in the lemon halves and more herbs into the cavity if desired.
Place the chicken on the barbeque and cover, leaving vents fully open to maintain heat.
Baste the chicken every 15 minutes alternating water and pan drippings. Midway through cooking turn the chicken 90 degrees. Continue frequent basting. The cooking time for a 3-1/2 pound bird is about 1-1/2 hours, depending on how hot your fire is. Cook to an internal temperature of 160°, measured in the thigh.
Let rest covered about 30 minutes before carving. Squeeze fresh lemon juice into the roasting juices, and pour into a gravy boat. Add salt, if needed.
Serve with roasted potatoes, green salad, and French or Italian bread.
this recipe is sort of unusual and i cut back on the sugar but, it really is good!

San, on your Fireman's Chicken, you said you parboil it, then marinate it and then I assume you finish it on the grill??? Sounds good.
hi roselin! i'm sorry--i should have specified that. and yes, you are correct. i tried the recipe in the oven once when we were really low on gas and it simply was NOT right!
