    My fiance and I have regular 8-5 jobs. We want to make healthy dinners with little to no carbs. Does anyone have any quick, easy recipes with chicken? We have been made a few different recipes that have been delicious but I don't want to eat them every night. Here is what we have so far:

    shredded chicken, pesto, pine nuts, artichoke hearts, and sun dried tomatoes. It's soooooo delicious!!! I recommend trying it!

    shredded chicken, black beans, corn, and taco seasoning.

    Please feel free to add your chicken recipes!!! :)

      you should go on allrecipes.com they have a ton of recipes there to look through. i always get recipes on there. plus people rate them after they make them so its kinda cool you can pick ones with great ratings.

      as for something easy i always just do a quick baked chicken with tomato sauce and low fat mozzarella cheese. I usually put the chicken in a skillet and throw a lil garlic and evoo in it to brown a little than put in a baking dish throw the tomato sauce and mozzarella on top. I know its not creative but its yummy and you dont have to use a lot of mozzarella cheese.

        I agree..you can also try going on to the food network and downloading chicken recipes or go to RR 30 min recipes. You can also try brining your chix breast and having them with whole grains which are much healthier choices of pasta.

          If you're looking for healthy, try MyRecipes.com - Find the Best Recipes, Menus, Cooking Videos, Dinner Tonight Ideas, Quick & Easy Meals, Healthy Cooking, and Popular Recipes all at MyRecipes.com - they have all the recipes from Cooking Light magazine there. Here's one of mine and the FI's favorites: Kung Pao Chicken Recipe - Poultry - MyRecipes.com

          Here's another easy one from one of my new fave cookbooks (I cut this in half at least for just the two of us).

          Chicken Oscar

          2 cups seasoned stuffing mix
          1/2 cup reduced-sodium fat-free chicken broth
          6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
          24 asparagus spears, cooked crisp tender
          6 slices (1/2 ounce each) provolone cheese

          Combine stuffing mix and broth; spoon stuffing into 6 mounds in greased baking pan. Top with chicken breasts. Bake, covered, at 350 degrees until chicken is cooked - about 30 minutes. Uncover and top with asparagus and cheese slices; bake uncovered, until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.

          Bon appetit!

            I like to like to saute minced garlic in some olive oil, and then I dip chicken breasts into the oil, so I can then dip them into a 50/50 mix of bread crumbs and pecorino romano (you can use parmesan instead). I then just cover and bake at 425 for 30 minutes (you can add spices to the bread crumb and cheese mix if you like).

            For really quick chicken I just sprinkle a bunch of garlic powder and seasoning salt on chicken breasts, and then cook them in a pan on on the stovetop (this is also lower calorie). Usually I make this chicken when we're just having big salads for dinner (I like to also put in hard boiled egg, strawberries, walnuts or pecans, dried cranberries, apple, croutons, goat cheese, and some balsalmic dressing).

            I also really like to make chicken stir-fries with authentic teriyaki sauce (made with mirin, sake, and soy sauce) but that's enough for now!

                I'm really into lemon rosemary chicken right now...I use fresh lemon juice, kosher salt, crushed pepper, minced garlic and fresh rosemary as a marinade and then bake the chicken in the marinade for 35 minutes at 375

                    We grill chicken ALL the time. I get up in the morning throw the chix in a ziplock add some EVOO, chop up some garlic, salt and pepper and let it sit in the fridge all day. then I pull it out and throw it out on the grill. Delicious! Can dip in dipping, eat w/ roasted potatoes, or sometimes i'll make a large chix salad. So simple and easy and so good

                      I just made this the other day...
                      Saute some peppers and onions and put them aside. Saute the chicken breasts in chili powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Mix a cup of salsa with some cream cheese and microwave. Serve the chicken on top of the peppers and onions, put the salsa/cream cheese mix on top, sprinkle with shredded cheddar. Yum!
