Chicken is a protein source that diners of all ages can enjoy, and it is a great canvas with which to express your culinary creativity while preparing dinner for the family. You can dress up chicken to make it fit for a gourmet meal or keep it simple so that picky eaters will have nothing to complain about. Here are a few suggestions for recipes that will help you make the most out of your fresh cuts of all-natural chicken:
- Roasted chicken and vegetables: This simple, classic dish is a great go-to when you are trying to fit dinner preparation into a busy schedule. It is a one-pan dish, so cleanup after dinner takes no time. Just season your chicken with your favorite spices and tuck a few sprigs of fresh herbs under the skin. Toss some roughly chopped vegetables like Brussels sprouts, onion, potatoes, and carrots around the chicken, and then drizzle everything in olive oil before roasting the whole dish in the oven.
- Grilled chicken parmigiana: Chicken parmigiana is an Italian dish that is sure to delight the taste buds, but it can be high in calories when it is prepared with breaded and fried chicken. Instead, use grilled chicken breast and top it with marinara sauce (pre-made or homemade) and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese. Serve the chicken over a bed of sautéed spinach with a side of whole wheat pasta for a complete, balanced meal.
- Thai coconut chicken curry: Add some exotic flair to your kitchen by preparing this interesting entrée that begins with cubes of tender chicken thighs. Brown the chicken pieces in a large pot and season them with some red curry paste. Top the chicken with coconut milk, a scoop of peanut butter, and dash of soy sauce for a tasty, unique curry dish. Serve over rice with some lime slices for garnish.
