Chicken breasts?

What is the best way to prepare boneless, skinless chicken breasts, including any spices? I'm planning on having couscous and green beans with it. Any suggestions?

  • I like to pound the chicken breasts down to about 1/4" thickness, dip into beaten eggs mixed with a little milk and then dip it into some Panko (Japanese Breadcrumbs). (Season the bread crumbs with a good amount of Course Salt, Freshly Ground Pepper and Garlic Powder). Saute the breasts in a little bit of oil until cooked through and brown and crispy on both sides. You can follow this same procedure and cut the chicken into strips to make Chicken Fingers. Or add cheese and marina to the original recipe to make "Chicken Parmesan".

  • I would go with either chicken kebabs or moroccan stew.
    For both, the spices would be the same: cumin, coriander, maybe some clove and/or cinnamon, paprika, cayenne pepper, turmeric, dry oregano, garlic and fresh ginger.
    For kebabs, marinate them in the spice mixture and some olive oil and grill them. Serve them with pita pockets and tahini sauce or hummus.
    For a stew, brown the chicken, remove from the pot ,add the veggies of your choice (onion, garlic, carrot, celery, peppers, etc) and the spices, add crushed tomatoes and chicken broth or water and return the chicken. Bring to a boil, reduce, add drained chickpeas and let simmer until everything is cooked and well seasoned.

  • I actually make a lemon couscous chicken dish. I add roasted garlic, olive oil and the juice of one lemon to the couscous while it cooks. I boil the chicken in some broth, the juice of one lemon, salt and pepper. Then I shred or cube the chicken and mix it in the couscous. You could add a little curry if you like that flavor.
