    I like thighs they have more flavor, and easier for kids to work with.

    MUSTARD CHICKEN
    I dip chicken thighs in guldens or dark mustard, then roll in bread crumbs .. Bake Yumm
    It doesn't come out mustardy either, but does get a nice crust on it, without frying

    STUFFED CHICKEN
    Thighs .. lay flat on cutting board, take knife and cut to bone, then carefully cut around the bone so you have a flat piece of chicken.

    THANKSGIVING STYLE:
    deboned chicken
    stuffing
    cranberry sauce
    soaked round toothpicks
    flip chicken to cut open side, put in stuffing, roll and poke in toothpicks
    take the canned cranberry sauce and place on top of the chicken about half way through the cooking time ..

    CORDON BLUE STYLE: (chicken, cheese & ham)
    I have the deli slice some Black Forest ham a little thicker than for sandwiches
    swiss cheese (preslice is fine)
    deboned chicken
    soak some round toothpicks in water
    bread crumbs
    mustard, or egg
    cayenne
    flip to open cut side, lightly sprinkle with a little cayenne, cut the ham in 1/2 place inside the chicken then the cheese, then the other half .. roll, dip in egg (or mustard), dip in breadcrumbs, poke in toothpick to hold shape .. bake

    GREEK STLE CHICKEN:
    deboned chicken
    basil
    feta
    spinach leaves (can use a bit of canned squish and chop)
    flip to open cut side of chicken sprinkle with basil, a layer of spinach leaves (If kids are not crazy about them chiffonade them so they have less). put in feta cheese, roll and pin with toothpicks

    yep my guys whine too .. I don't serve it every meal but sometimes having a bunch of different recipes help ..

    cooking chicken ethnic style helps -

    I love it in Indian dishes and soups

    I have found that if its mexican chicken they don't seem to count it as chicken LOL .. so making taco type meal, or add some hot sausage to it and make with corn bread etc they ignore the fact it has chicken in it ..

    same thing with chinese - if we are at the restaurant they will grab chicken that is spicey etc and never even mention ewww chicken ..

    oh and if its made with gravey and biscuits ... I added cheese and garlic to the biscuits, then made gravey with marked down mushrooms & chicken - NO complaints

    3 tbs sliced shallots or onions
    2 tbs halved Nicoise or Kalamata olives
    2 tbs quarterd large pimiento-stuffed green olives
    2 tbs extra-virgin olive oil
    12 slices Italian bread
    12 thin slices tomato
    Place garlic on cutting board. Sprinkle with salt. Mash garlic and salt using side of chef's knife to create paste. Combine mashed garlic and salt with all remaining mayonnaise ingredients in small bowl. Gently toss chicken, artichokes, shallots and olives in large bowl. Stir in mayonnaise mixture. Lightly brush about 1/2 tsp of the oil over each bread slice. Top 6 slices of the bread with chicken mixture, tomatoes and remaining bread. 6 sandwiches = about 295 calories.
