Very Good 4.3/5

This recipe is great on its own or cut the breasts into strips for other uses. I usually make a large batch and freeze the strips. The chicken is great in any recipe calling for cooked chicken. Chicken fahitas, pasta sauces or salads are my family's favourites.

I also freeze the marinated chicken in the ziploc bag. I buy in volume when on sale even if I don't have the time to cook it right away.

Chicken Breasts with Red Wine Sauce
Very Good 4.4/5
(135 ratings)

This is a lighter take on the classic Italian preparation of Chicken Cacciatore (or Chicken Hunter Style). Our made-over version uses white meat rather than dark and less oil to cut almost 60 calories per serving and reduce the fat and sodium of the traditional recipe.

Turkey in Walnut Pomegranate Sauce (Fesenjaan)
Good 3.5/5
(2 ratings)

This is an exquisite Persian food that can be made with poultry or beef. I like to use it to use up my leftover holiday turkey, The prep is fairly simple, but it takes a long time to cook and can scorch so I recommend doing it in a slow cooker. If the sauce gets to thick before it gets to a dark rich brown color, add more water. It should be the consistency of a thick gravey. The meat can be cooked in the sauce, but start it earlier in the process. Raw beef cubes (1.5 x 1.5 Inches) or chicken pieces should be browned and should cook for several hours, to be very tender. Add the sweetener a bit at a time and add more or less to taste. The pomegranate molasses is quite tart and more or less can be used to taste. Adjust the sugar and pomegranate before adding any partially cooked meat or poultry. Serve over rice (not included in nutritional information).

Simple to make and tastes wonderful!

You can also substitute chicken breasts instead of thighs, you'll need to adjust the calories too.
