  1. We live in Florida so it's nice year round to grill outside. So, usually chicken on the grill for us.

  2. I like to make whole chicken in the crock pot with garlic.

  3. Green chicken enchiladas. Thanks for the chance to win

  4. I'm with Buncobuddy, we almost always grill, but when I just need a change, I have a stove top recipe I like. In a frying pan, put in olive oil, add chicken cubes, garlic, onions and anything else that sounds good or you want to get rid of. Cook until chicken is done. Add a can of cream soup (usually cream of celery), about 1/2 cup milk, a 15 oz. can of diced tomatoes and a package of frozen broccoli (or fresh). Cook until broccoli is done. Serve over rice (or noodles). It makes an easy change from grill.

  5. I prefer plain old deep fried chicken; but, for a change of pace, once in a while, chicken and noodles taste pretty good. I use 2 cans of chicken broth to boil the frozen noodles in. Chop up 1/2 of a large onion to boil with the noodles. When the noodles are close to being done, add in 2 cans of chicken breast, 1 can chicken gravy, and 1 can of cream of chicken gravy. Once in a while I will add a can of mushrooms, drained. Yum! Yum!

  6. I love fried chicken. We do grill a lot of chicken, too. Thank you for the chance to win this cartridge.

  7. I make a dish with chicken, pasta, asparagus tips, and cherry tomatoes cooked in a little chicken broth and tossed with parmesan cheese. I could eat it every night!

  8. Chicken Caciatore has been my fav ever since I had it the first time. It's always my go-to dish for first-time dinner guests.

  9. I love an old-fashioned roast chicken with dressing. If there are enough chicken leftovers, I like to make some chicken noodle soup or chicken tacos the next day.

  10. Chicken Cordon Bleu is one of my favorites!

  11. During cold weather, my favorite is chicken tortillas soup. Just put everything in a crockpot...and actually, I've used the same recipe with leftover turkey, and it was good too. Warm weather - my fave chicken recipe is one with syrup, bread crumbs/flour and oil. Fry up the chicken breasts and eat. My whole family will eat it too. :)

  12. Chicken and dumplings are the best.

  13. Spicy BBQ chicken with some home maid french fries. As we say in Portuguese , frango com PIRI PIRI.

  14. Chicken on the grill with BBQ sauce. Yummy!

  15. Chicken Sonora! It's a great dish for a crowd! It takes 4-6 chicken breasts (cooked in bite sized chunks), a medium jar of salsa (whatever brand and your choice of hot, medium or mild), 1-15 oz. Can Hormel chili (we use no bean, but it doesn't matter if you like the beans!), 1 can cream of chicken soup,1 package of soft tortillas (cut or ripped into bite sized chunks), and 1-12oz. package shredded cheddar cheese. Mix the chili , soup, salsa and chicken. Layer chicken mixture, tortilla chunks, and cheese. You should do about 3 layers of each item, ending with cheese on top in an oven safe dish (I spray the dish with cooking spray). Cook at 350· for 45-55 minutes. This is a really easy dish to throw together for 6-8 people easy. I love that every can and package is totally used up in this recipe! I highly recommend throwing sour cream on top after it is dished out! It's also great with garlic bread! I have found that 9 out of 10 kids love it! That really surprised me! I hope you try it!

    1. This sounds great! Thanks sharing your recipe. :)
