Question How do you season your chicken?

I am getting a little tired of the chicken I have been making and was wondering of simple or different ways to season the chicken?
Thanks in advance!

Poultry has a plethora of possibilities. One I've been hooked on lately is lime juice, fresh cilantro, garlic, and olive oil. I marinate it for 24 hours. So good. Sometimes I also add cumin.

Maybe eat some other foods instead of chicken so often. I don't think most chickens are very healthy eating these days. I had one the other day. I won't be buying one of those again.

Normally on the rare occasions i buy them, i would only buy a free range chicken.

I like-

Roasted garlic powder and lemon pepper.

Bit of broth, chili powder and lime juice.

Lime juice, honey, minced garlic, a tiny bit of soy sauce and oil. This one is my favorite. Best on the grill, IMO.

I like to simmer chicken (or pork) in salsa (any variety). I particularly like Walmart's corn and blackbean salsa.

I like to use spray some pam on skinless chicken then sprinkle on garlic powder, butter buds, and Emeril's chicken spice.

The way we do roast chicken at home is in yogurt, salt and red chillies. You can add other spices if you like, but this works really well.

Use enough yogurt to liberally cover the chicken. And then steam the chicken (one can use a pressure cooker if you're good with it or put it in the broiler - whatever works for you)

Once it's mostly cooked, put it in the oven at a high heat (a little drizzling of oil to get a nice red tinge) and voila.

It's pretty juicy and spicy. My favourite combination.

For the left over yogurt and spice in the pan, put it in a saucepan with a little water and reduce it down. It makes a good gravy that coats the chicken with extra flavour as it cools.

I often steam chicken breasts in those Ziploc Zip'n'Steam bags. I just throw in a frozen/fresh chicken breast, sprinkle some seasonings on top, then add a handful of frozen veggies on top with a little more seasoning or salt & pepper. I can have a whole meal ready in under 10 minutes (including prep). I sometimes put a drizzle of olive oil on the finished product.

I really like to use Tone's Rosemary Garlic seasoning or lemon pepper.

This is the most amazing recipe for whole roast chicken, bar none:
http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2008/...n-bread-salad/
(It takes some practice to perfect - by that I mean figuring out how to stay burn-free and not smoke up the kitchen - but it's worth it, I promise.)

In general, brining - dry or wet - will do amazing things, as will marinading. I had some really nice chicken breast last weekend and wanted to do justice to it. I brined them for a couple hours, then marinaded them in a little oil and a generous dash of tamari (wheat-free soy sauce) before grilling. It was astounding how moist and tasty they were for so little work/ingredients.

Mmm, that sounds amazing! I wish I had a grill.

That one kind of reminds me of a sauce I love that I learned from Cook This, Not That: butter, brown sugar, dijon mustard, honey, soy sauce. When I use it as a marinade, I just omit the butter. Word of caution: If using this marinade, make sure to wipe the marinade off before cooking or else the sugars can burn. Yeah, learned that the hard way.

Mrs. Dash seasoning--- they make a million varieties, are generally salt-free (if you watch that type of thing) and the shakers last for a long time. Great for other dishes besides chicken such as tuna fish, cole slaw, homemade vinaigrette, etc.

put it in a non-stick pan, a little water and low. cover the pan.

make sure to keep putting in water when it dries so it doesn't burn.

the yogurt will turn into tiny round bits at the bottom of the pan.

if there's too much water, that's not an issue. Once the chicken's mostly cooked through, take off the cover and raise the heat. the water will dry pretty soon. and then you pop it in the oven for the roasting bit.
