Default Chicken 5 nights a week...

I am eating boneless, skinless chicken every night Mon through Friday. Anyone have different ways to cook their chicken and what they use? It's starting to get a little bland.

So where you are at!!

There is a few chicken threads on the foods forum on this site. Check them out!

For me, I LOVE to make taco chicken.

Just cook up chicken and use a packet of taco seasoning. Great for salads, in a wrap, or just plain!

I also like to bake it with lawrys salt and miced onion. Sounds kind of grose, but really yummy!

Check out the purple team thread too. Stephanie Osborn has some good ideas that she posted for Chicken too. We tried her italian dressing chicken once and YUM YUM!!!

I eat a LOT of chicken too!

My favorite is to bake it in the oven and 15 minutes before it's done, sprinkle salsa and FF cheese on top. Yummy! I usually have this with broccoli and red skin potatoes (that I bake with evoo, garlic, and onions). Mmm!

If you chop up the chicken and grill it, it's really good with black beans, rice, corn, tomatoes, and chiles/peppers. I'm having that tomorrow! You can add anything you'd like (salsa, low fat tortilla...). Needless to say, I love mexican food haha! Stir fry is good too though!

I make a few chicken dishes -

- Brown the chicken with some olive oil and red pepper, cut into strips. Stir fry zucchini, assorted color bell pepper, carrots, red onion with some spices I don't cook creatively - I know I use all of my red spices on the chicken, all of my green spices on the veggies. I'll look at the names tonight if you are interested, as it is my planned meal for tonight). Toss together, serve over angel hair pasta.

- Brown chicken with taco seasoning, cut into strips and make quesadillas with lite wheat tortillas and lowfat Mexican cheese, salsa

- Cook chicken until not pink, simmer with Vindaloo seasoning, vinegar, a little salt, water, and sauteed onion. Serve over a small portion of white and wild rice. Spicy.

- Make mini pizzas - low fat mozzarella cheese, pita bread, turkey pepperoni optional, pizza sauce, fresh tomato. Same green spices in my cabinet from the first meal.
I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday.

I marinade mine in a light mixture of spices, calorie controlled bbq sauce and dijon mustard and pan fry in a little olive oil. They are really good.

Since it's getting cold, how about make a big batch of chicken barley soup?

I throw in boneless chicken tenderloins
chicken bouillon or broth
whatever veggies I want (my favs are cabbage, carrots, onion, celery, and zucchini. Sometimes, I'll add a can of diced tomatoes.
bring to a boil and simmer for a couple hours

Even better the next day!

Check out this feature on CookingLight.com: 20/20 Superfast Chicken Suppers.

Make soup or chili. You can make up a big pot, have leftovers for dinner later in the week, and freeze some for a quick dinner in the future. There are tons of great chicken soup and chili recipes on CookingLight.com.

Here are a few of my favorites:
Moroccan Chickpea and Chicken Chili
Chicken with Chickpeas
Coconut-Curry Chicken Soup
Coq Au Vin

Also, a few non-soup favorite chicken recipes:
Spicy Chicken Cakes with Horseradish Aioli
Easy Chicken Adobo
Honey Dijon Chicken
