Chicken breast is celebrated for its versatility as a cut of meat due to its lean and tender nature. With its mild flavour, it serves as a blank canvas that readily absorbs the flavours of various seasonings, marinades, and sauces. Whether it’s grilled, baked, stir-fried, stuffed, or used in salads or sandwiches, chicken breast effortlessly lends itself to a range of dishes.
Here are 3 dish ideas for you to try:
➡️ Baked Parmesan Chicken: Coat chicken breasts with a mixture of breadcrumbs, grated parmesan cheese, and dried herbs such as oregano or basil. Bake in the oven at 200°C for about 20-25 minutes until golden brown and cooked through. Serve with marinara sauce and spaghetti for a classic chicken Parmesan dish.
➡️ Stuffed Chicken Breast: Butterfly the chicken breasts by slicing them horizontally without cutting all the way through. Stuff them with a filling of your choice, such as spinach and feta cheese, sun-dried tomatoes and goat cheese, or mushrooms and Swiss cheese. Secure with toothpicks and bake in the oven until the chicken is cooked and the filling is hot and melted.
➡️ Chicken Piccata: Dredge chicken breasts in flour seasoned with salt and pepper. Pan-fry them in a combination of butter and olive oil until golden brown. Remove the chicken from the pan, then deglaze with lemon juice and chicken broth. Add capers and simmer for a few minutes. Pour the sauce over the chicken and serve with pasta or mashed potatoes.
