I am uninspired right now...I need some ideas to do with chicken and broccoli. Not your normal chicken and broccoli casserole...

I don't mind having them seperate...just need something new.

help!

@mismi,
Chicken broccoli stir fry is excellent. Easy too.

@mismi,
Off the top of my head, mismi ... if you want easy, why not a simple stir fry with steamed rice? Have you got any slivered almonds or other nuts you could gently "dry fry" or roast & throw in at the end?

I don't suppose you like anchovies...
I like broccoli sauteed with garlic and mushed tinned anchovies (not many, maybe just two - they basically replace salt) in butter and or olive oil with a goodly pinch of chile flakes.
I would, wouldn't I?

I'm in a tired-of-chicken phase, no advice off hand.

@msolga,
I do like that idea and I do have almonds...
Why do I forget about stir frying? I did it all the time for a while...

Thanks!

I like stir fry too. (No wok anymore so I haven't kept up with stir frying)

@ossobuco,
They were on sale for $1.99 lb. and my kids prefer chicken...probably why I am a bit burned out on it myself. I just feel nothing for it right now...which is why I need help!

I need to rethink anchovies osso...I had them not too long ago and I really didn't mind them at all....I think it depends on the dish as to whether I like them or not.

@mismi,
I just steam my veggies, but you could also make a broc salad.

Chicken Chipotle (you need chipotle sauce and either whipping cream or half-and-half)

Chicken dijon - you will need honey, curry powder and dijon

@Cycloptichorn,
I have Old Bay seasoning. That sounds nice too...that sounds really easy too.

Both nice and easy.

Easy chicken nuggets - cube chicken, crush up a bag of potato chips (or just enough for what you need, a few different flavors is fun) - egg wash, cover with crushed chips, cook 20 mins @ 375 or until done. Drizzle a little butter or olive oil on top before cooking for extra brownness.

Chicken-veg bake - chop potatoes, onions, broccoli, carrots whatever really. Place in a baking dish with the veg around the outside and the chicken breasts in the middle. Mix together 2 parts soy sauce to 1 part butter and 1 part lemon juice. Mix well, pour (reasonable amount) over entire mess, cover, bake until chicken is done. Tastes good, don't overdo the soy sauce or it'll be too salty!

@mismi,
It's dead easy, and if he's picking up the Chipotle, tell him to pick up some mushrooms to add to it. If you decide on this one, I'll type it out.

@mismi,
bread and fry the chicken in lard, then make some mashed taters and lots of gravy.

then some biscuits.

(one of your neighbors prolly has a hamster that would enjoy the broccoli...) Wink




waiting for mame to come back aboot the fancy spicy stuff.

@mismi,
okay here you go:

Saute some onion and mushrooms; remove from pan. Add chicken to pan (in pieces, if you want to be quick about it), saute. When nearly cooked, add back the onion and mushrooms and then equal parts sour cream (if you have it) and whipping cream or half-and-half. Add chipotle pepper sauce to taste.

Good with rice, pasta, etc. Really great leftovers.
