Summer Cooking: Chicken Breast ideas #dinnertip
This past weekend I asked Twitter for some good summer ideas for using the chicken breast in my fridge. I ended up doing the Key West chicken and Cilantro Lime rice I blogged about here, but I got such good ideas, I wanted to share them for those of you searching for summer cooking ideas!
@heathterwpetty Grill and shred for salads/tacos? (Or bake and shred, if your oven doesn’t heat up your kitchen too much.)
@SpiceBites Poached and shredded to use in tacos & salads!
I love Asian too esp. for summer. Do a poached chkn brst & raw veggies salad w/fish sos, lime, ginger
@DebNemeth We do a lot of chicken Caesar salads in the summer too. And chicken fajitas are always good…
Greek-flavored chicken souvlakia: marinate breast strips in oregano & lemon, saute in olive oil, serve on fried pita(continued)
w/ tzatziki (cucumber/yogurt/garlic/dill) sauce, tomatoes & sauteed onion. Serve w/ tabbouleh
@rlarocque andoori – marinate in plain yogurt and spices overnight, then BBQ. Not too spicy, either.
@HeleneYoung Tandoori chicken breasts, slow roasted, served on a bed of couscous with a green salad 🙂 And a drizzle of natural yoghurt!
@Yvena I like hammering them flat, adding spices, cooking in a pan. Maybe with a cucumber salad?
@DeniseJTompkins Fajitas and use the leftover meat to make fajita quesadillas. Mmmmmm. 🙂
@Shelley_Watters Citrus chicken: zest and juice of 1 orange & 2 limes, melted butter, garlic, salt & pepper. Cover breasts with sauce and bake.
@TrishB chk breast recipe wrap chk w/bacon mix brown sugar, pineapple juice & lil mustard baste while grilling. My kids favorite
@CarolynRosewood Cooked and cut up into cubes for a salad with tomatoes, cukes, etc. Can use almost any dressing on it including oil & vinegar.
@SilverLily I love them with pesto and melted provolone on top
@LizabethSTucker I grill them with pieces of pineapple and orange juice. You can also add some fresh coconut to give it an island taste.
@nancyevertz fajitas. Lime, honey and cilantro marinade. Probably some oil in there. Messy on the grill. Grill the breasts and then slice.
@cpblackburn Lemon pepper both sides of the chicken and bake it. That has a definite summery vibe to it.
@HillaryJacques Cut in strips, marinate in balsamic vinaigrette, then grill. Perfect on salad or rice
@Chumplet Toasted club sandwiches or chicken Caesars.
@CristalRyder Next u in Toronto, grab bottle PC Memories of Tuscany from Loblaw stores, great on chicken. I have fab creamy mustrd chkn rcpe
@beth_caudill Grilled with barbeque sauce over them is real good.
