I am trying to Emory my freezer, it's full of meat! Mostly chicken.

I got a bag of breast out last night to defrost and now can't think of anything to do with it! I would usually roast it or stuff and wrap with bacon but im bored of that. I have a stocked store cupboard and a few veg bits in the fridge. Any ideas would be grand. smile

I had chicken last night - dice the breast and mix with 1/2 tspn five spice powder and a little salt. Bring a pan of water to the boil and drop in about 300g broccoli florets, let the water come back to the boil for a minute or two, then drain. Chop a garlic clove and about a tablespoon of ginger and stir fry for a minute in hot oil. Add the chicken and toss till it turns from pink to white. Add a tablespoon of light soy sauce and the same of rice wine or sherry and a couple of tablespoons of water. Simmer on a low heat for a couple of minutes. Mix 1 teaspoon of cornflour into a little cold water and add to the chicken to thicken the sauce - don't do this if you like it thinner. Add the broccoli, toss through to heat up and serve with boiled rice. Whole thing takes 25 minutes max and looks, smells and tastes lovely. This makes a proper supper for 2, scale up to your numbers...

Jar of pasta sauce chicken breasts on top, packet of bousion (sp) scattered on top. Bake. Some cheese stays on the chicken, some ends up in the sauce.

(Tesco's own brand garlic cheese is cheaper and works fine)

Dice the raw chicken breasts and mix with crushed garlic, chilli flakes, cinnamon, curry powder/garam masala, and a glug of olive oil. Cook some cous cous. Lay the chicken in a oven proof dish, put the cous cous on top and bale in the oven for about 25 mins. I normally roast some tomatoes to serve with it. Serve it up with lemon wedges and natural yogurt. Delish, and dead easy.

cooked breast, chopped, mixed in a white sauce with anything else you fancy e.g. onions or leeks, mushrooms, bacon and topped with mashed potato & baked.

Or with a tomato sauce and use as a lasagne filling

A quick fallback for me is: chop an onion, a couple of cloves of garlic and some streaky bacon. Fry all in pan with olive oil. Reduce heat a bit, add chicken breasts, plus some mixed herbs or fresh thyme, parsley and rosemary if you have any to hand. Can butterfly chicken breasts to get them to cook more evenly if you want. Simple but yum. You could easily add chopped mushrooms, courgette, leek, celery - whatever you have to hand. Just don't be too stingy with the bacon and oil, otherwise it can get too dry.
