I have a pack of chicken breasts in the fridge than need cooking today. I cannot think for the life of me what to do with them apart from fajitas again.
Any ideas very welcome or I may just put them in the freezer!

Dip them in egg and cornflakes, cook in the oven and top with dribble of sweet chilli sauce?

I mean, can you ever really beat a fajita?!

If you've got some spices to make up a Moroccan style spice blend, cinnamon, cumin, turmeric, cloves fennel, make a tagine, you could add apricots, or sultanas chopped dates, almonds or preserved lemons, serve with cous-cous for something a bit different.

It's probably too late but I found this recipe on Pinterest and honestly it's the nicest easiest chicken recipe I've made n ages, observed with cubed roast potatoes and broccoli.

Garlic butter chicken.
Slightly flatten chicken breast, cost in flour seasoned with salt pepper and garlic granules, fry in pan with oil until crisp and golden, remove from pan. Add garlic to pan cook for a minute or so add chopped parsley and a little bit of stock, reduce down, add a good amount of butter return chicken to pan baste with the garlic butter and serve.

I do a sort of Spanish chicken with rice quite a lot, I think it was originally a Delia recipe? Basically chicken, onions, peppers, tin tomatoes, paprika and rice - cook it all together - add chorizo if you have any.

I know it's too late for today, but this is one of our current favourites smile

@Imtoooldforallthis, I did your garlic chicken last night with cubed roasties and fine green beans. It was really delicious, who would have guessed shed loads of garlic and butter would be so nice? wink

I know much more satisfying than kievs that have no butter in them.

I had this problem yesterday but knew I wanted to do them with pasta and I got some really great ideas for people.

I ended up diving the chicken breasts and making a chicken and chorizo pasta dish with spinach.
