Chicken Recipes

With rising food costs, making a menu that doesn’t break the budget can be a daunting task. However, if you take advantage of some of the reasonably priced staple food items, with a little imagination, you can serve a diversity of meals that will please both your family and pocketbook.

Chicken is one such food that is healthful, nutritious and versatile. Here we’ll look at the many ways chicken recipes can add value to your menu and save you time in the kitchen to boot.

There is hardly a cuisine in the world where chicken does not hold a prominent place in everyday cooking. Every cuisine is distinguished, in large part, by the seasonings native to the region.

Seasoning is the heart of any dish. With the varied seasoning sets of cuisines available from around the world, you can make any recipe a brand new taste experience. This is particularly true of chicken recipes. With its mild flavor and firm texture, chicken is the chameleon of meal ideas.

Take a look at some examples. Chicken curry over rice, with the fragrant, spicy herbs of India may be contrasted with Cajun gumbo or chicken fried rice seasoned with Chinese five spice.

The French chicken may be roasted with the savory flavors of thyme, marjoram and lavender. Chicken leftovers may be chopped, seasoned with spicy Mexican-Southwest flavors and popped into a taco or baked into an enchilada.

Chicken noodle soup served with salad and rolls, makes a healthy lunch or light dinner. Lemon chicken is a Chinese delight.

Save up wings from roasted chickens for a batch of buffalo wings. Jamaican cuisine yields dozens of chicken recipes with a variety of flavorful chutneys and salsas. Then you have the old standbys, chicken casseroles, Southern fried chicken and chicken sandwiches.

On hot summer days, make a chef’s salad with strips of chicken breast. There is a world of chicken recipes for the imaginative cook.

The slow cooker is a time-saving device that allows you to cook a quantity of chicken which can be skinned, chopped, portioned and frozen for future menus. If you wish, you can season each portion before freezing for do-ahead chicken recipes for additional time savings.

When freezing cooked meat, immerse in chicken broth to maintain the freshly cooked texture.

You’ll soon find it’s easy to create your own chicken recipes. Check the frig for those leftover vegetables.

A little chopped onion, celery, corn, peas or bell pepper can be mixed with a chicken sauce from your broth and served on top of noodles for a satisfying, tasty dish. Chicken recipes abound on the internet, so you needn’t have a gourmet library to spark up your menus.

Try something new, give your family a treat and save a bundle on food!

    I have been using these spatulas for a few weeks now. I wanted to test them in different cooking situations. I am very happy with them. They are heat resistant and very flexible. Of course the handles are made of plastic so you have to be careful with them or they will melt.

    Edit 9/15/09: Nearly a year later and the spatulas are still going strong.

    Edit 10/15/12: After four years I am starting to detect some cracking on the edge of these spatulas. I’m elated that it took this long to show any wear. Product still usable. I

    Two wonderful attributes of these spatulas: They have silicone heads which make them usable around heat, and the handles feel soooooo GOOD. The handles are smooth and rounded instead of flat, and fit the hand comfortably. The selection of shapes makes this a versatile set, too. The small jar spatula, the standard spatula and the spoonula cover the range of jobs for which a spatula is ideal. The only minor detail that I would change if it were possible, considering the materials used, would be to make the the corners of the spatulas sharp, not rounded. They would then fit into the corners of food processor bowls a bit more easily. But I can deal with slightly rounded corners, given the excellence of this product.

    I really liked these at first, but after only a few uses they started snapping apart at the handle/silicone junction. The other complaint is the silicone spatula would slip off when being used. The ability to separate the silicone from the handle might be handy for cleaning, but it also allowed water to seep into the space between the handle and the silicone.
