Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Recipes - Two Quick, Easy, and Healthy Recipes

Boneless skinless chicken breast recipes are easy to make, quick to get to table, and good for you. The most common way to prepare them involves oven cooking to reduce fat content that frying may not offer.

However, if small amounts of olive oil are used for frying many recipes can be developed which are faster than oven baking and just as nutritious. One such recipe is Chesapeake Chicken.

Chesapeake Chicken

Chicken breasts
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. butter
1 to 2 Tbsp.Old Bay seasoning
3/4 cup Low fat whipping cream

Fry chicken breasts in olive oil and butter until almost cooked (15-25 minutes)
Add Old Bay seasoning to taste (2 Tbsp is a very spicy amount)
Add low fat whipping cream
Simmer until thickened, stirring occasionally

Oven Baked Chicken Breast

This low fat meat should be a vital component of any healthy diet plan. It is a relatively inexpensive source of quality protein.

As tasty as this is you have to remember that you don't need as much protein as Americans usually eat every day. Your daily protein requirement is a piece of meat approximately the size of a pack of playing cards. Keeping that visual in mind will help you determine proper portion size.

Oven Baked Chicken Breast With Onions And Bell Pepper

Chicken Breasts
2 medium onions, sliced
2 bell peppers, cut into rings then halve rings
3 Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. butter
Sea salt to taste

Coat the chicken breasts with 1 Tbsp. of olive oil and place into baking pan
Sprinkle chicken breasts with sea salt
Bake chicken uncovered in 350 degree preheated oven for 45 minutes
Place onions in a skillet with 1 Tbsp. of butter and 1 Tbsp. olive oil then sauté until translucent
Place bell pepper in a separate skillet with 1 Tbsp. of butter and and 1 Tbsp. olive oil then sauté until slightly browned

Serve with a side of sauteed onion and bell pepper. Place the onions on one side of the chicken breast and peppers on the other. This will add visual interest to your dish and keep the flavors separated.

A side dish of whole grain pasta and marinara sauce (marinara from a jar is fine) will add a great accoutrement to this dish. Garnish with grated Parmesan cheese.

Served with a hearty red wine this simple meal becomes an elegant offering fit for guests.

Begin the meal with a large salad or raw vegetable platter. This will give you the raw food enzymes that are destroyed when food is heated. Such a diverse offering will give you a wide array of nutrients.

The sea salt adds minerals to your foods. Olive oil is very "body friendly" and is always a welcome addition to any dish. Butter offers wonderful flavor and "anti-stiffness" factors. Red wine offers anti-oxidants and is therefore part of a heart smart diet.

Now you have two great boneless skinless chicken breast recipes you can eat knowing they are offering you vital nutrients to make you healthier. Great taste, when combined with "body friendly" versions of your favorite recipes will allow you to eat healthy and not feel the least bit deprived.
