Chicken Breast

So, every Sunday I cook up several chicken breasts to snack on, quick lunch, etc. I barbecue them A LOT but need some new ideas for inside Chicken prep. Not necessarily chicken meals but different seasonings/marinades etc etc... Any ideas?

    Balsamic chicken is really good with a bit of honey. Also, I love a marinade with fresh lemon juice & olive oil or even lemon pepper.

    Chicken leg
    Chicken drumsticks

    Breasts are not my favourite chicken part

    I really like Shake N Bake on thin chicken breasts- like half an inch thin. You can do the egg/salad dressing with any oil and vinegar dressing.

    chicken salad (small amount of light mayo doesn't add that many calories).

    Make a variety of different season rub mixes. Here's my usual list of seasoning: Hot curry powder, Paprika, barbeque, Chinese 5 spice, thyme, jerk, all purpose seasoning, fajita seasoning,.

    Just choose any combination of seasoning you like and get your munch on.

    I usually eat chicken thighs, chicken legs, chicken drumsticks before chicken breasts. Not only is it tastier, the fat helps to hit my fat requirements for the day instead of adding additional fat to things via oils etc (not that there's anything wrong with that I just prefer fat from animals).

    Chicken Enchilada Casserole - freezes/reheats well too

    Chicken Enchilada Casserole

    Shredded Chicken Breast 23 oz. 690 cal.
    Enchilada Sauce 10 oz. can 75 cal.
    Rotel 10 oz. can 68 cal.
    Onions 1 tbspn 0 cal
    Taco seasoning 1 tbspn 10 cal.
    Corn tortillas 4 servings 280 cal.
    Mexican Cheese 224 gms 320 cal.
    1433 calores

    Serving ¼ recipe 406 cal.

    Black Beans 10 oz. can drained optional

    Cook chicken in pot - shred when done - add onions and season to suit while cooking. I use salt, pepper, garlic powder and the taco seasoning

    Add Rotel and Enchilada sauce - simmer for a while until thickens (maybe 30 to 40 minutes)

    Add black beans to above if you want

    Once thick enough, remove from heat.
    Place 1/2 of skillet in baking pan, add 1/2 of the tortillas and the cheese on top
    Place rest of skillet on top of prior and add the remaining tortillas and top with remaining cheese
    I shred my tortillas

    Place in oven for a few moments to melt cheese and serve.

    Depending on your components, 1/4 recipe is about 360 calories (430 if black beans used) is delicious either way.

    If you use marinades, how do you log that?

    You give it something that I use called BEST GUESS. Search for it...if your best guess is 100 calories...use 0.1 Best Guess.

    I look at a marinade like BBQ much is on da-bird and best-guess it.
