I am sick, with no energy. Can anyone suggest a simple, tasty recipe for Salmon Fillets and Chicken breast (skinless and boneless). I am cooking for one, which tends to get very boring anyway. Thanks all!

I put 2 small potatoes in the oven to bake for the 2 of us. When they're about 25 minutes from done I add a salmon filet and just bake for 25 minutes. I put it on a rack in a dish and sprinkle with seasoned salt. While that's cooking I chop a salad. SUPER easy dinner and one of our favorites. For chilcken check out the Campbell's soup web site. There are many recipes there for one pan chicken dishes that are very easy and fast. Please don't get in to the toast and tea dinners that so many single people do! You'll STAY tired if you don't eat right.
I like to use sweet and sour sauce that you buy in a jar. I place either the chicken or salmon in a baking dish and pour the sauce over it and bake uncovered until done. I serve this with rice or noodles and its great.
I use prepared salad dressing to baste my chicken and fish. PC Blue label makes a sesame vinigrette dressing that is particularly tasty. Just baste the fish or chicken with Italian, Ranch or other favourite salad dressing and bake until done, turning once and basting the other side. At 350*F, the chicken takes about 30-40 minutes and the fish about 10 minutes a side. Poaching in a water/lemon juice mixture with Mrs Dash Herb and lemon is tasty too, especially for fish. I put a salmon fillet or chicken breast in a PC Blue Menu Hot Dog First bun, add chopped lettuce and tomato and chow down. PC is Presidents Choice and they make some really good basting sauces too.
Quick & Easy Poached Salmon
Prep & Cook: 5 min.
Salmon steak or fillet; chicken tenders or chicken breast (fresh or thawed)
1 tbs. butter
1 clove garlic or
1 tsp. garlic spread/butter to taste
1-2 tbs. water (omit liquid if you do not want to poach - you will get a light sauté instead.)
Note: Frozen product will have additional water in it.
Add if desired:
Shallots or onion thinly sliced
Heat butter, garlic, and water In sauté pan or shallow fry pan until mixed. Do not burn.
Place salmon in the mixture and poach on medium low with lid on.
Turn the salmon after 2 minutes, and poach other side. Do not overcook.
Salmon: You can pierce the center and pull apart to see if it is done to your taste. If it is dark pink or red, it is not fully cooked.
Chicken tenders or chicken breast: Poach until center is white; an additional minute or two.
Remove from pan and place on plate.
Garnish with parsley, lemon, dill, or your favorite sauces.
Serve with rice or pasta. (You can find packaged & precooked at the grocery)
Add a vegetable, salad or fruit to round out the meal. (Raw or slightly steamed is fast)
These are the fastest salmon & chicken recipes I have discovered! A whole meal in only 10 minutes; saving your energy for what you need it for! Get Well Soon! :)
I put 1 chicken breast in a baggie and add bottled marinade then seal & freeze. On busy days I put one in the fridge to thaw. When I get home from work I throw it on my little George Foreman grill, put a roll on top to warm, add a salad & voila! I also like Italian dressing as a marinade.
If you take your skinless boneless chicken breast, marinade it with maybe a honey teriyaki marinade or whatever flavor you enjoy, (the bottled kind), wrap the chicken with a strip of bacon (poke with a toothpick to hold the bacon on) and grill it, it's DELICIOUS! Hope you feel better soon!
Hi! I hope you are feeling better soon! I know you asked for salmon fillets, but here's one that's really easy for you.
1 CAN OF SALMON.
Salt & Pepper to taste
Drain canned salmon.
Remove bones, and flake.
In seperate bowl, scramble the egg, then pour onto the salmon. Add a small amount of the flour and salt & pepper.
Mix well with fork.
Heat Canola oil in skillet.
Take and scoop salmon, small amounts, into a tablespoon and drop into skillet and lightly fry.
Draine well on paper towels and enjoy.
This was a quicky and if you can digest a little of the Canola oil it is delish!!
Take care and God Bless You!
A simple way to cook salmon is to place it on a piece of foil, add some lemon juice, butter and whatever seasoning you like and wrap into a package. Cook in a 350 degree oven for about l5 minutes. I cook mine in a toaster oven and it's delicious. Hope you soon feel better.
I like to use the microwave. I take a piece of plastic wrap, place my salmon on it with some thin sliced onion, dill and a slice of lemon. Then I add two slices of butter, wrap it up, place it on a plate and microwave on high for 4-5 minutes depending on the size of the fillet. I've also done this using just dry herbs such as Mrs. Dash herb season or Lemon Pepper and butter. It's fast and there is almost no mess
