You Can Cook With Chicken Many Different Ways

My family eats a lot chicken since it’s a lean way to meet our protein needs. One of the great things about chicken is that it’s so easy to integrate into different recipes due to it’s mild flavor.

One day you can grill it and baste it in barbecue sauce, the next day you can make a chicken teriyaki stir-fry and later in the week enjoy chicken enchiladas. Three days of chicken dishes and yet completely different meals.

My Healthier Version Of Chicken Florentine Bake

One of my favorite chicken recipes is an Italian version. Years ago, a friend of mine gave me a recipe she called “Italian Chicken.”

It was delicious but involved several steps and dirtying many dishes. I simplified the recipe to get it all into one dish with as few steps as possible.

In eliminating some of the extra steps, I also cut the fat and calories so this version is equally tasty but healthier.

  5. I agree with you. Chicken is one of my favorite sources of protein for my family. The other is beans. This recipe has everything in it that my family would love! I will have to give it a try.

  6. Hi Corinne – I am all about one dish cooking, especially when you can put not just one but TWO vegetables in the same dish. Can’t wait to try this at home. Hugs, Holly
