Healthy Chicken Recipes

Chicken, more than ever, is a staple in every home. Choosing chicken that is free-range, without added antibiotics and hormones is a healthy choice for your family. In addition, using it as a flavor enhancer instead of the main attraction will not only add to your health, but keep your bank account intact too. After all, buying organic, free-range chickens aren’t cheap. Once you start seeing meat as a condiment instead of the main attraction you can get a lot more creative with your dishes.
Start with a 3 lb whole chicken, wash, clean the inside, season and roast it. Once it’s done, debone the chicken and reserve all the meat for the following recipes. Yield is about 4 cups of cooked chicken. Remember that you can also use the carcass to make a delicious chicken broth by boiling it with onions, garlic, and spices. Save the broth in ice cube trays to add a pop of flavor to any dish.

Asian Cashew Noodles & Chicken

1 LB cooked noodles according to instructions. In a wok or large frying pan, heat 2 TBS Sesame oil,  2 stalks chopped scallions, 1 large carrot, shredded, add in 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms one at a time in that order, for 45 seconds each then add 2 TBS oyster sauce, 2 tsp soy sauce, 1 TBS rice wine. When combined and veggies are almost done, add in 1 cup cooked chicken until heated through, lastly, toss in noodles. Enjoy.
