Chicken Recipes

Chicken Francese

5 - boneless 5 oz. chicken breasts
5 eggs
3 oz. Romano cheese
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 cup flour
pinch of white pepper
1 cup chicken stock
1/2 pound butter
juice from 2 lemons
1 1/2 cups oil (10% olive oil, 90% vegetable oil)
lemon slices and chopped fresh parsley for garnish

Pound chicken breasts flat and cut in half. Set aside.
Scramble eggs in mixing bowl. Add Romano cheese, parsley,
and white pepper. Blend and set aside.
Put flour in a large shallow bowl.
In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Check temperature by dipping a corner of a chicken piece in oil. If it boils slowly, oil is ready.
Coat both sides of a piece of chicken with flour. Dip chicken
in egg mixture, making sure all flour is covered with egg. Let
excess egg drip off, then place chicken in hot oil. Repeat
with 4 more pieces. Fry each side of chicken until a light
blond color. Remove from oil to a serving plate - keep warm.
Repeat with other chicken pieces.
Bring chicken stock to a light boil. Add butter, stirring
continuously, until melted. Add lemon juice and cook for
1 minute while stirring continuously.
Pour sauce over chicken and garnish with lemon slices
and chopped fresh parsley.


Chicken Caesar Stuffed Pita

Dressing:
1/2 cup water
1/8 teaspoon dry, unflavored gelatin
1/3 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon finely minced red bell pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
1/8 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
dash parsley
dash oregano
dash thyme
dash basil
1 tablespoon grated Romano cheese
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons egg substitute

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
salt
pepper
6 cups romaine lettuce, chopped
1/4 cup red cabbage, shredded
1/4 cup carrot, shredded
4 pita breads
4 teaspoons shredded, fresh parmesan

1. Make the dressing by first dissolving the gelatin in the water. Heat the
mixture in the microwave on high for two minutes or until it begins to
rapidly boil. Add the vinegar, then whisk while adding the oil. Add bell
pepper, salt, garlic powder, worcestershire, black pepper, parsley, oregano,
thyme and basil. Let dressing cool for about 15 minutes before adding
cheeses and egg substitute. Whisk until slightly thicker, then chill.
Overnight refrigeration makes the dressing thicker.
2. Preheat a barbecue or indoor grill to medium heat. Salt and pepper the
chicken, then grill it for 5 minutes per side, or until done. Remove chicken
from the grill and dice it.
3. While chicken cooks, prepare the salad by combining the romaine lettuce,
red cabbage and shredded carrot in a large bowl and toss.
4. Prepare the sandwiches by first microwaving each pita for 20 seconds.
5. Fold each pita in half like a taco, then add 1 to 1 1/2 cups of the
romaine salad into the bread.
6. Add about 1/3 cup of diced chicken on top of the salad in the pita.
7. Pour about a tablespoon of dressing over each sandwich.
8. Sprinkle about a teaspoon of shredded fresh parmesan on top of each one and serve.

Alice Springs Chicken

Honey Mustard Marinade:
1/2 cup Grey Poupon Dijon mustard
1/2 cup honey
1 1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

Chicken:
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 cups sliced mushrooms (10-12 mushrooms)
2 tablespoons butter
salt and pepper
paprika
8 slices bacon, cooked
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh parsley

Using an electric mixer, combine mustard, honey, 1 1/2 teaspoons
oil and lemon juice in small bowl. Whip mixture for about
30 seconds. Pour about 2/3 of marinade over the chicken breasts
and marinate them (covered) in the refrigerator, for about 2 hours.
Chill remaining marinade until later. After the chicken has marinated,
preheat oven to 375 F and heat up an ovenproof frying pan
(large enough to hold all four breasts) with 1 teaspoon of oil over
medium heat. If you dont have an ovenproof skillet, transfer the
chicken to a baking dish for the baking. Sear chicken in pan for 3-4
minutes per side or until golden brown. Remove the pan from heat,
but keep the chicken in the pan. As the chicken is cooking,
saute the sliced mushrooms in butter in a small frying pan.
Brush each seared chicken breast with a little of the reserved honey
mustard marinade (not the portion the chicken marinated in), being
sure to save a little extra to serveas a side. Season chicken
with salt, pepper, and a dash of paprika. Stack two pieces of
cooked bacon, crosswise, on each chicken breast. Spoon the
sauteed mushrooms on the bacon, being sure to coat each breast
evenly. Spread 1/4 cup Monterey Jack cheese onto each
breast, followed by 1/4 cup of Cheddar. Bake the pan of chicken
for 7-10 minutes or until the cheese is thoroughly melted and
starting to bubble. Sprinkle each chicken breast with 1/2 teaspoon
parsley before serving. Place extra marinade in small bowl
to serve on the side.
