I sometimes cook them in marinade or dressing. That way the flavor is getting cooked into it.

Cook it and shred it and make chicken spaghetti or chicken burritos or tacos or taco soup.  Or mix a can of cream of mushroom with a small container of sour cream and then pour over the chicken breast.  Top that with stove top stuffing mixed with the recommended amount of water and bake at 350 for an hour.  My dh and kiddos love this and they don't like sour cream or stuffing!

I love chicken breasts grilled on my George Foreman with Nature Season.  You could also make white bean chicken chili.  If you want the recipe, pm me and i will give it to you.

how about cutting it up and making stirfry? or you could make taco chicken fingers. just cut the chicken into chicken tender size strips, shake in a bag with a taco seasoning packet and a little cornmeal, then bake on a cookie sheet at 350 for about 20 minutes or so.
