here is a really easy chicken recipe on my blog

you need chicken, salt, one egg and french's fried onions (which it looks like you don't have but easy to find in any store)

Okay.. I know this is a little late for this meal. However, this might help for future referrence. 

malt vinegar

garlic powder

onion powder

red wine (cooking wine will work - just don't add salt)





In a skillet add all of the above. Go by smell and sight. It shouldn't look like there is much more of one than the others. Taste it. If it doesn't make you want to throw up, it's perfect. (LOL You will know what I mean when you taste it)

Then turn on the burner. Add either chicken breast halves or thin slices of chicken breast. Cook until done. Discard liquid in the pan.


Take cilantro, pepper, salt, garlic powder, onion powder.. About 2 tablespoons of each. Sprinkle onto the chicken breast halves. Then take some coarse ground mustard... and spread over the chicken. One side of each piece of chicken. Then put in skillet until done. (I would recommend this with skin on bone in as well if you ever have it, then leave in long enough for the chicken to be done and the skin to be really crunchy)


Take the italian bread crumbs, put in bowl, then take another bowl and do an egg wash with milk, then in third bowl take plain flour, plain bread crumbs, or panko. or a combination of any of those, then dredge in seasoned bread crumbs, egg wash, then: you either dredge in the plain bowl or redredge in the seasoned stuff, then egg wash, then finally in the plain bowl. Make sure that there is a pan (or deep fryer) with oil in it and that the oil is at least 375 degrees. Or that it pops when you drop in one drop of of flour. 

Then deep fry until cooked. If you do strips of the chicken it should only take about 5 minutes if that. The coating will be golden brown. and they will float.


baking dish:

melted butter, shallots (onion with a slightly milder flavor,), white wine, on top of the shallots place the chicken. (this works with fish as well... put fish skin side down even if it is skinless you can tell) then pour some more melted butter. Pop in oven for about 30 minutes. 

If ya want any more ideas let me know. I have tons of cookbooks and I have done a lot of experiments. I have only shared the ones that my husband has agreed with me that they tasted really good. 

My husband (before he met me) has always had this opinion of chicken no matter how it's cooked - Eh, it's chicken.

Since we've been together, he doesn't say that. He tells me that it's really good. There have only been a few times where he will look at me and say "eh, it's chicken" which means that I messed up and the experiment failed. 

I don't ever want my food to be "Eh, it's ___<anything" I want my food to stand out and taste amazing.

Salsa Chicken

  • 4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs
  • 2 cups of salsa
  • 3 cups chicken broth


Bring chicken broth and salsa to a boil in a large pot. Add chicken and simmer for 2 hours. If liquid evaporates to soon, add 1 cup of water. After 2 hours, all of the liquid should be evaporated leaving the chicken and thickened salsa. Use 2 forks to shred the chicken. Serve in tacos or make a burrito with rice and beans.
