Grilled 7-Up Chicken 1/2 cup soy sauce 1/2 tsp Horseradish (it tastes okay without this, but I highly recommend using it! Adds the perfect amount of zip!!) 1 (12 oz) can of lemon-lime soda pop (not diet) 1/4 cup vegetable oil Mix all ingredients together in a Ziploc bag. Add 4-5 chicken breasts and marinate for at least 30 minutes (although the longer you go, the better they taste! I usually marinate my chicken for at least 8 hours or overnight). Grill over medium-high heat until cooked all the way through.

Crispy Chicken with Creamy Italian Suce and Pasta

Time: 45 minutes
Yield: 6 servings
Recipe from Jamie Cooks It Up!

3 large chicken breasts

5 C corn flakes
3/4 C flour
1/2 t salt
1/2 C milk
6 T olive oil  
1   12 oz package bowtie noodles (farfalle)
Sauce: 
1   10 oz container Philadelphia Cooking Cream (Italian Cheese and Herb Flavor)
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 C chicken broth
1/2 C milk 
fresh parsley, chopped (optional)
  
1. In a small food processor crush the corn flakes into crumbs. 
2. Add the 1/2 t salt to the 3/4 C flour. Stir to combine. 
3. Place the flour, milk and crushed cornflakes each into their own separate pan. Loaf pans work well for this. If you don't have three loaf pans, do not dismay. You could use pie tins, or round cake pans...what ever works for you. 
4. Place your chicken breasts in a gallon sized Ziploc bag and seal the top. 
Pound the chicken flat with a meat mallet. You will really be thankful for the Ziploc bag in this step. Who wants a bunch of chicken guts flying around their kitchen? Not me...that's who. 
5. Take a pair of sharp kitchen scissors and cut each breast in half. 
6. Dredge the chicken in the flour. Be sure it gets covered on both sides. 
Lay the floured chicken onto a small cookie sheet and slide the sheet into the freezer. Let it hang out there for about 5 minutes. 
7. Start cooking your pasta. 
8. Remove the chicken from the freezer and dredge each piece in the milkand then immediately into the corn flake crumbs. Again, be sure both sides are covered well. 
9. Add the olive oil to a hot skillet. 
10. Carefully lay each chicken piece into the hot oil. Sprinkle with a little bit of salt and pepper. Cook over medium high heat for about 5 minutes....
or until the underside of each piece is nice and golden brown. Turn the pieces over. If the bottom of the pan is dry add just a bit more olive oil to the side of the pan. Swirl the pan around a bit to let the oil flow to all sides. 
11. Cover the pan and reduce the heat to medium.  Let the chicken cook for about 7 more minutes, being careful not to burn the bottoms. Burned bottoms are not advised. In any shape or form. Thank you. 
12. When your chicken has been cooked through remove it from the pan and place it on a plate. Cover with tin foil.  
13. Into the same pan pour your broth. Philly Cooking Creme, Cream of Chicken, and milk. Whisk the sauce around and let it get all warm and bubbly. Should only take about 3 minutes. 
14. Slice your chicken into strips and serve over your cooked pasta and sauce. Garnish with chopped parsley if you choose

 Creamy Chicken and Roasted Red Pepper Pasta

  • 1 lb. bowtie pasta (or any kind of pasta would work!)
  • 1-1 1/2 lbs. cooked chicken, sliced or cubed (I just sauteed some while the noodles cooked)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed or crushed
  • 4 Tbs. butter
  • 1 cup half and half, room temperature
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tsp. seasoned salt
  • 12 oz jar roasted red peppers, sliced
  • 1 cup mozzarella, shredded
Cook the pasta according to the package directions.  While it cooks, melt butter in a skillet over medium heat and cook the onion and garlic till soft.  Whisk in half and half and chicken broth.  Stir in seasoned salt and mozzarella.  Lower the heat to keep the sauce from boiling.

Add the chicken and red pepper slices to the sauce.  Stir frequently and keep and eye on the heat so it doesn’t boil.  Drain the cooked pasta and stir it together with the sauce.  Add chopped parsley or basil when serving.

Chicken With Mustard Cream Sauce

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon dried tarragon or oregano

Directions
Add olive oil to a large skillet and preheat over medium-high heat.  Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper.  Add chicken to skillet and saute until cooked through, about 10-12 minutes, turning once.  Transfer to a plate and keep warm.  Pour chicken broth into hot skillet.  Whisk in the cream, mustard and tarragon or oregano.  Cook and stir for about 2 minutes.  Pour sauce over chicken and serve.

Let's Dish
I found this recipe in a newly purchased cookbook, Everyday Food: Great Food Fast (from the kitchen's of Martha Stewart Living).  It's my new favorite cookbook.  I love it so much I subscribed to Everyday Food magazine.  This chicken is a perfect example of the kind of recipes that are featured in the Everyday Food cookbooks and magazine.  Quick, simple and delicious.  I almost always have the ingredients on hand for this recipe, which is great for the nights I haven't really planned anything for dinner and don't want to spend a lot of time figuring out what to cook.  It's not a bad idea to double the sauce, as that gives you plenty for the chicken, plus some left to spoon over a side of rice.

Light BBQ Chicken Pizza

Ingredients
  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 cup cooked, shredded chicken
  • 3/4 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • thinly sliced red onions
  • fresh cilantro
Instructions
  1. Chop the cauliflower into medium pieces. Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add the oil and heat until shiny. Place the cauliflower in the hot oil, stir to cover with oil, and place a lid on the skillet. Check skillet every few minutes to keep cauliflower from burning, but let it get a nice browned roasted outside. Continue to let cauliflower cook, covered, for about 10-15 minutes, or until tender-crisp. Let cool for a few minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 450. In a blender or large food processor, place eggs, cornmeal, and seasoning. Place cauliflower in blender and puree until you have a semi-smooth, thick batter. Cover a pizza pan with parchment paper and pour batter into the center of the paper. Spread until you have about a 1/2 inch thick crust or thinner if desired.
  3. Bake the crust for about 20 minutes, checking occasionally to keep from burning. I liked the crispy edges, so I recommend letting it brown a little bit more than a normal crust.
  4. While crust is cooking, coat chicken with barbecue sauce. When the crust is cooked through and golden brown, remove and top with barbecue chicken, half the cheese, red onion, and the rest of the cheese. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden. Top with cilantro, slice, and serve!
