Chicken Breasts Sautéed with Orange
The citrusy sweetness of fresh orange brightens the flavor of this quick and easy sauce. Spoon it over skillet-browned chicken breast halves and serve with a steamed brown and wild rice mix.
(Low-Fat) Chicken Chili
Chili can be cheaper when you make it with ground chicken instead of ground beef. And this chili is great for a last-minute supper because all the ingredients are items that you can keep on hand in either the freezer or pantry.
Spicy Ginger-and-Orange Chicken with Broccoli
Add triple orange flavor to this spicy stir-fry with the addition of fresh orange sections, orange marmalade, and grated orange rind. If your family loves stir-fries, you've probably already got the other ingredients such as soy sauce, sesame oil and ginger on hand.
Ricotta-and-Ham-Stuffed Chicken Breasts
Tuck slices of ham into chicken breast halves and stuff with a savory cheese and basil filling for a dish that's special enough for company, but easy enough for weeknight dinners.
Creamy Chicken and Broccoli Curry
Use on-hand ingredients such as frozen broccoli, chicken tenders, canned chicken broth and curry powder to make this quick and easy curry dish. The creaminess comes from the sour cream that you stir into the sauce just before serving.
Chicken Breasts with Peppers
Save yourself a bit of chopping and open a jar of roasted red peppers for a quick and colorful sauce to spoon over skillet-browned chicken.
Chicken Fried Rice with Vegetables
A fried rice dish is a great way to make the most out of a small amount of chicken. It's also a great way to use your leftover rice.
Lemon-Rosemary Chicken Thighs
Because chicken thighs are such affordable pieces of chicken and because this recipe only has five ingredients other than salt and pepper, you can make this easy chicken dish for $0.73 a serving.
Prepare fried chicken at home for way less money than you'd spend buying a bucket at a fast food restaurant.
