Making A 5-Ingredient Chicken Dish
When spring begins to fade, and thoughts turn to warm summer nights, try stuffing large tomatoes with chicken salad for a cool, breezy supper dish. Mix together cooked diced chicken, mayonnaise, chopped celery and chopped onion. Cut a large tomato in quarters and fill the inside with chicken salad. Change it up a bit and add a scoop of chicken salad to a bowl of mixed greens and serve with ranch dressing.
The stir-fry method of cooking is not only healthy, but quick. Thinly sliced chicken strips can be found in the butcher block section of the supermarket, and are excellent for stir-fry purposes. Brown the chicken strips in oil using a wok. Add one sliced green or red pepper, one small roughly chopped onion (or substitute with scallions), one half pound sliced fresh mushrooms, and teriyaki sauce.
Within minutes, a delicious chicken dish is ready, and can be served with steamed rice or oriental noodles. A variety of fresh vegetables can be used, such as zucchini, carrots, celery, baby corn, and snap peas, which makes this dish as versatile as can be.
Creating quick, new chicken dishes can be as simple as swapping two or three ingredients. Keeping staples such as rice, pasta, cream soups, sauces, and vegetables in the kitchen provides an unlimited number of meal combinations that will please even the most finicky diner.
