This is a wonderful simple yet fancy recipe that is perfect for entertaining. I made it for a Valentine's dinner for my boyfriend back in High School and it's now my husband's favorite.

glazed chicken with asparagus and rice on plate.

My family eats chicken often (on sale a lot) and I always try new ways to make it. This is one chicken dish I make that is a little different and goes well with any side dish.




Flatten chicken to desired thickness. In a bowl, whisk together egg and maple syrup. Place crushed pretzels in a separate shallow dish. Dip chicken in egg mixture, then coat with pretzels.

Heat oil over medium heat in a large frying pan. Cook chicken on each side 5-7 minutes or until juices run clear.

Note: I do not flatten chicken breasts but rather slice them horizontally in half. This saves me time and is less messy.

This is an easy and great tasting recipe that I just threw together for something different one night. My family loved it and were asking for seconds!

This is a very easy dish I came up with after having a lot of leftovers from salad the previous day. My husband and son both loved it. I loved it also but for a different reason - it's easy to prepare and takes only minutes! It's delish and you can change the vegetables and meats to whatever you like or have on hand.



In a large skillet, add a small amount of cooking oil, enough to cover the bottom of skillet. After the oil gets hot, put chicken and garlic into skillet and cook until almost done. Add all the vegetables and cook until tender. Add jelly. Mix cornstarch well into about a 1/4 cup of cold water and pour into pan. Stir quickly into the mixture and this will make the gravy. Serve over rice or noodles.

I have about 4 lbs. of split chicken breast with ribs. I'm tired of the same old recipe. Can someone give me an idea? I'd prefer to bake today.

I don't know what your same old recipe is, but when I have that kind of chicken, I make oven fried chicken. I remove the skin, season the meat with salt & pepper and soak it in milk for an hour or so. Meanwhile, line a jellyroll pan with foil for an easy cleanup and heat the oven to 375.

Coat the chicken in seasoned breadcrumbs (I like the Progresso or Ronzoni brands) and place on the baking pan. Drizzle each piece with oil and bake for about 40 minutes. Leftovers are good cold.

I am looking for the recipe, that was in a ladies magazine. It had a bag of herb dry dressing, can chicken broth, chicken breasts, and vegtables. I think it was baked. I can't seem to find that recipe again and wanted to try it. You and yours have a safe happy holiday.

Thanks for the help,

Hi, Jo.

Here's my recipe for spices/herbs.

Why not try it in with a can of chicken rice soup, chicken pieces (breasts or thighs) and your favourite vegetables (fresh or frozen)? I've lso include my curried chicken recipe. INstead of curry, use the spice mix?

Curry Sauce

Heres a low-fat & spicy, albeit healthy alternative to creamed sauces.

Youll need a 14-ounce can of commercially available chicken-based vegetable or rice soup.
Failing that, you can of course make your own.
I recommend lentil, potato or pea soup (something thick which will puree smoothly).

In a blender, combine the soup with
2 tablespoons curry powder,
&frac; teaspoon black pepper,
&frac; teaspoon turmeric,
&frac; teaspoon coriander,
&frac; teaspoon cumin,
1 teaspoon sugar and
1 tablespoon flour (to thicken).

Add 2 - 3 dried red peppers or 1 - 2 teaspoons dried chili peppers,
according to your preference.


Pour these ingredients into a medium-size pot.
Add pre-cooked chicken, sliced, or shrimp and
1 medium onions, diced,
3 large carrots, sliced and
2 stalks celery, sliced.
Cook for 10 - 15 minutes over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sauce thickens.

1 cup frozen peas,
&frac; green pepper, seeds removed, diced, and
1 cup fresh mushrooms, quartered.

Serve over cooked rice. (Basmati is terrific.)

Variations include other pre-cooked meat, pork or beef, and other or additional vegetables

Herbs & Spices

If you have a coffee grinder, this recipe will be easy.
Alternatively, a very small food processor or mortar and pestle will serve.

Combine 2 teaspoons dried basil,
2 teaspoons dry dill weed,
1 teaspoon parsley flakes,
1 teaspoon celery seed,
3 teaspoons onion flakes,
2 teaspoons salt,
&frac; teaspoon pepper and
&frac; teaspoon garlic powder.

Finely grind all. Stir well. Funnel into a salt shaker.

This is great on salads, by itself or with a whisper of vinegar, in place of dressings,
very tasty on raw or cooked vegetables in place of cream or cheese sauces,
excellent on frozen vegetables just out of the microwave,
a nice replacement for butter and sour cream on baked potatoes,
better than just plain salt on just about everything and
makes a nice seasoning for home-made soup.

Have fun experimenting!

In the 1960s a women's magazine had a recipe that took a chicken breast, cut two slits in the breast, ruffled and stuffed bacon into the slits, and basted the chicken with a mixture that included lemon juice. This was baked and it was not only delicious, it was beautiful. Does anyone have the recipe?
