New Chicken Recipe from MyLotter, @porwest
May 12, 2019 2:25am CST
Several weeks ago I asked my friends here at MyLot how they would cook chicken breasts. I was looking for a new or different way to cook chicken breasts as I was tired of eating them the same way: baked, BQ'd, cooked in gravy, or sauteed chicken strips. Mylotter @porwest (Jim Bauer), suggested that I season the chicken breast and then sear them in a frying pan. Then add 2/3 cup of chicken broth and 1/4 cup of ranch dressing after the chicken had been seared. Cook on medium heat for about 25 minutes and you are done. I used this recipe the other night and it was pretty good. I ended up with a fair amount of leftovers so I decided to get creative and make a new dish out of what I had. I decided to boil some pasta and add to the chicken and sauce mixture. This turned out very good and my husband ate leftovers without complaining. This was an easy dish to prepare and clean up after. It was also inexpensive and provided a good base for a meal. You just need to add a vegetable and you are ready to serve. Thank you @porwest for suggesting this recipe. It turned out to be a hit.

@kareng Now see, I for one, LOVE leftovers. But that's just me. That being said most of my leftovers are eaten at work during lunch, and what I don't use up there generally winds up into a soup or casserole or something. The only reason I rarely eat the original leftover dish for dinner is because I love cooking, and so I always want to make something new...even if the something new is from something old. So, I think you managed to accomplish essentially the same thing.

@porwest I used to take leftovers for lunch at work also when I was working. I refuse to throw away good food. I have been trying to be creative in making the leftovers into a new meal one way or the other. So yes, looks like I am doing the same thing you do.
