How to prepare an interesting chicken meal?

Advice needed! I really need some new recipes for the chicken to fill up my menu. The plane chicken soup and chicken fried in the oven with the potatoes is just not enough for me. I never liked it anyway and I always was looking to add something special in it.

Ten days ago I even made a chicken to resemble some tuna. It passed as a tuna, and it would be tuna if I don't have a huge mouth. I told my folks that it is chicken. In fact the chicken breasts. Nobody like them, so I made a recipe with some tomatoes and oil and I boiled them together to look like tuna.

My folks like my experiments and love seeing em cooking because it is one of my favorite hobbies beside writing.

I always invent something tasty. To make things better, even my hubby knows how to cook, so we can surprise each other all over again. Specially if he overdo some of my oriental spices. Now that can be really interesting.

But, I need more imaginative recipes than that. I looked around on the net, but everything is way too spicy for me.

My grandchildren all like chicken goujons and CAP chicken. For chicken goujons, cut the chicken breast up into small chunks or slices, dip in beaten egg and roll in seasoned breadcrumbs or cornflour. Fry until the chicken is cooked right through. I usually start the temperature off hot to seal the goujons, then turn it down to cook them without burning. Serve with potatoes and veg or with rice or add a sauce of your choosing.

For CAP chicken, I use Coconut oil, Almonds (ground almonds) and Paprika (CAP). Cut the chicken breast into chunks or strips, coat with beaten egg then roll in seasoned ground almonds. Fry in coconut oil to seal, then put in a slow cooker, with stock or a tin of tomatoes in juice or a sauce of your choosing. Cook on high for one hour, then turn to low until cooked to your liking. Serve with rice or pasta.
I cook the bones in the slow cooker for 24 hours to create bone broth, (strain it of all the bits) then cook onion, carrot, garlic, ginger and turmeric in the broth and blend it to make carrot soup.

I was going to suggest that you try chicken karahi but I see that you do not want it to be spicy. I cannot eat chicken without lots of herbs and spices so my recipes will not be to your taste. Sorry..I hope someone comes along with a nice recipe

Just leave out certain spices or cut way back on the amounts in some of those recipes. You might find a few you like by doing that

Ooh...these sound delicious, MegL ... esp., the CAP chicken. Yum.

I would be interested in your recipe. Perhaps you will write a piece on it?

I just shared a chicken recipe that you can make with as mild as you want, depending on the paste you use. I suppose you could use no curry paste and it would be a different version all together.

I made CAP chicken for my grandchildren's tea tonight. I just rolled the chicken pieces in ground almonds, paprika an a bit of salt and then fried them in thecocout oiluntil cooked. I turned the heat to very low and put a plate over the top to cook them in their own juicez. The younge s t granddaughter(17 months) had hers straight from the pan (cooled down) and her daddy put his in a large pitta along with salad to make a big sandwich.

Well, you have convinced me. I haven't bought almond meal in awhile. It's now time. emoticon :winking:
