Some of the most commonly used ways for grilling are the broiler in the oven, the BBQ, and the electric grill. Chicken is an inexpensive and healthy food choice. Here are two grilled chicken recipes that I have successfully used over the years to keep my family happy and healthy.
For this recipe you will need:
– One boneless, skinless chicken breast per person
– One medium onion
– A handful of mushrooms of your choice (portobello, button, or white)
– Some feta cheese
– 2 Saltine crackers, or bread crumbs
– 100g of sliced ham
For the stuffing:
Combine equal parts of finely-chopped onions, with finely diced ham, and chopped mushrooms. Add finely crushed Saltine crackers or breadcrumbs with two tablespoons of feta cheese. Mix well. Wash and rinse chicken breasts and pat dry. Cut a pocket as deep as possible without going through, in each breast. Fill with stuffing mixture. Gently stretch and fold over chicken to seal. Preheat oven to broil or grill setting and place chicken on grilling rack. Grill for 10 minutes. Remove chicken from oven, and lightly brush with some olive oil. Sprinkle with parsley (optional). Replace in oven for further 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with rice or a cold pasta salad.
You may try adding chopped black olives (Greek flavor)
Chopped Pineapple (Hawaiian flavor)
Chopped Jalapenos (Tex-Mex flavor)
Depending on your taste you may add anything else you like.
Another very simple grilled chicken recipe is to place washed and dried chicken pieces into a plastic bag and add half a cup of your favorite salad dressing. Let marinate in fridge for half-hour to one hour, and then BBQ on medium high basting occasionally. Serve with a side salad and some French Fries.
Grilling chicken is very simple and easy and it is up to individual taste as to what you can and cannot do. The basic idea is to use what is at hand and have some fun with it. By experimenting, you will soon discover your own personal Grilled Chicken Recipes that your family will want again and again.
