    Need *quick* help w skinless boneless chicken recipe!

    I go in for out-patient shoulder surgery tomorrow, and I live alone, so between now and then I need to make a bunch of pre-prepared meals. Chicken breast is going to be a mainstay. I guess baking it is going to be the easiest way to prepare it in bulk, but are there any recipes or ideas you might have to make it cook up a little less dry than normal? Other than covering them in bacon, that is?

    then again, maybe at this late stage I shouldn't get overly ambitious -- I could just salt and pepper them and bake em to 160, cool em, cut em up, and call it a day. But ... is anything better I could do? -- assuming I'll feel up to eating anything, what with the pain killers and the anesthesia hangover and whatnot ...

    thanks!

    Crock pot to make juicy meat? That way, you can shred it and add different spices later.

    You could take some of the breasts and pound them, then use a little bit of coconut flour(or substitute) mixed with spices and bake them.

    plain baked breasts can be great for chopping into chunks and turning into chicken salad.

    This is for turkey breast, but I think the same applies:

    I cooked a sheet tray full of chicken breast on Sunday. I think the oven was set to 220 or something low like that and I took them out when my probe registered 145. They are very moist and not at all dry.

    Cutting them up and rubbing them in a Jamaican Jerk rub and broiling them 5 min on each side is super easy and gives the chicken breasts some flavor.

    Chicken soup? Organic broth is easy to come by if you don't mind a trip to the store. Cut up the breasts into chunks (I find it quickest and easiest to do this with scissors), throw em in the broth with some vegetables, season, the end. You could crockpot it if you want, or just do it on the stove. I usually use a big pot and then just reheat the whole pot of soup, take a portion, and put it back in the fridge every time I want to eat some. You could also freeze portions in ziploc bags.
