    I have a chicken breast planned for dinner but no idea what to do with it. I'm thinking maybe a nice sauce but I'd prefer a syn free sauce. Any inspiration for me please?!

    I'd make the BBQ sauce recipe that's on here and as it simmers add the chicken sliced so it cooks in the sauce, add some mushrooms, green beans or whatever you fancy and make it more like a casserole. It's my favourite thing to do with chicken.

    If you don't fancy that then make a slit in the breast and add a cheese triangle/quark/cheddar with some garlic and herbs then wrap in bacon. Yum yum yum.

    The chicken breast stuffed with the laughing cow cheese and garlic and then wrapped in bacon was a big hit with my OH he loves it.

    There is a recipe for cooking chicken with diet coke and passata and another for iron bru in the recipe section I think both of those would be worth a try.

    Your chicken cassarole sounds delish Laura Ill be sure to try that. :D Thanks hun

    Running out for lemon pepper .. mmm sounds so tasty thanks kiss me - I mean your name not really asking you to kiss me ... :eek:

    How about making it into a chicken curry?, with tinned toms, garlic, onions, curry powder and some peas for extra veggie-ness?

    For my fav chicken recipe, I chop up a breast and bake in the oven while I make a sauce on the hob with tinned chopped tomatoes, tikka power, onions, mushrooms and then I throw in some fat free yog at the end to make it look creamy and a bit masala like.

    Sometimes, I'll marinade the chicken in yog and tikka powder and cook on george foreman and serve with veg as tikka kebabs.

    Or I like chicken pesto pasta - 2.5 syns for a spoon of res pesto. Dry fry chicken, add onions, mush etc and then add fat free yog mixed with a spoonful of red pesto. Then add pasta.

    you could try the chicken kieve recipe in the book that came with the latest mag, just without the breadcrumbs LOL.

    or perhaps have it with some rice (as a healthy extra), with the rice add vegetable stock, peas and soy sauce...yum. mix the chicken in...ok i'm drooling, i'll be back in a while after i've eaten that myself.

    I'm going for a chicken kiev with breadcrumbs (Hex B). :D I'm doing SE, so I'll have some veg soup first and tonnes of veggies.

    yumyum. :D i'll tell you now, it's a very messy proceedure...or maybe that's just me. i'd do the breadcrumbs first though rather than the filling, save a lot of problems in the end. :)

    I made quite a lot of mess but it was absolutely delish. :D Put loads of garlic in the LC cheese, so it was like a proper kiev.

    Only needed one slice of bread, so got to have an alpen light while waiting for supper. ;)

    it only took me one slice of bread too! LOL but i still wish i did the bread crumbs before the filling, i couldn't seem to close it up well. but thankfully it all stayed together and seemed to mesh when cooked.

    personally i think my half a lemon was a bit too much lemon, but overall it was very nice. i am very glad you seemed to enjoy it as much as me.:D
