What To Make With What’s On Sale: Chicken Breasts

It’s time for What To Make With What’s On Sale! Boneless, skinless chicken breasts (family pack) are just $1.47/lb at Rancho Liborio this week! It’s been a while since we’ve seen chicken breasts at that price.

Here are some ideas for what to make with chicken breasts!

When I have chicken breast on hand, one of my favorite recipes to make is Chicken Parmesan. This yummy version uses panko-style bread crumbs–found at Asian markets or in the specialty section of most grocery stores–which gives the parmesan breading the perfect light texture.

If you’re looking for a chicken recipe with Asian flavors, try this Foil-Baked Chicken. With eight ingredients, it’s a simple meal to make; just serve with rice and a green veggie!

(The recipe calls for hoisin sauce, which can be found in the specialty section of most grocery stores, as well as Asian markets. If you’re not familiar with hoisin sauce or don’t want to bother with finding it, try replacing the hoisin with a little extra soy sauce, brown sugar, and a dash of red pepper.)

Chicken fajitas are another great way to use boneless, skinless breasts–and red bell peppers, which are just $0.99/lb this week at Rancho Liborio! This Chicken Fajitas recipe looks delicious and calls for ingredients that you likely already have on hand.

If you have a garden and you’re growing mint, this Almond-Apricot Chicken with Mint Pesto is a must-try recipe! Although the name sounds complicated, it actually has a short ingredient list and takes less than thirty minutes to prepare.

Chicken salad is another great, refreshing summertime meal.

Try this Mustard Chicken Salad from Ina Garten, or if you’re feeling a little more exotic, this Curried Chicken Salad–also from Ina Garten–is amazing (although I prefer it with mandarin oranges in place of the raisins!)

What’s your favorite way to use boneless, skinless, chicken breasts?

  1. I LOVE chicken parmesan with panko – it’s the best breading ever. I used to buy it at an Asian market, but it seems like they move it around all the time and sometimes the language barrier keeps them from being able to help me find it, LOL.

    Anyway, I found it at King Soopers recently with the “other” breadcrumbs, and amazingly enough, the Private Selection brand was cheaper than it is at the Asian market, as best I can recall.

    I like to cook the chicken through the pan-frying process and then freeze the cooked fillets so all I have to do is top them with sauce and cheese and bake.
