Tasty Tuesday...A Few of Our Favorite Chicken Dishes

Happy Tuesday Ladies!
Today I am sharing a few of our favorite, easy chicken recipes.  If you have a favorite chicken recipe I would love for you to share it with us!  I am going to try to have a link up for this next week, so everyone can share their recipes too!!
Chicken...we eat A LOT of chicken....and I guess we eat so much of it, because there are so many ways to cook it!  As a mom to 5, you can imagine how crazy hectic our life is, and I am always looking for super easy dinners to whip up for the family! 
I am apologizing for the lack of photos, I really need to start remembering to take pics of what I am going to post about!  These are just a FEW of our favorite, easy chicken dinners!!!
5-6 chicken breasts
5-6 red potatoes, quartered
1 lb. fresh string beans
8-10 tabs of butter
1 packet dry Italian Salad Dressing
In a 9x13 baking dish place chicken, potatoes, and string beans, (I usually put my chicken in the middle row and the potatoes and string beans on either side).  Place tabs of butter over the top and sprinkle with the dry salad dressing.  Cover with foil and cook on 350 for about 45 minutes.
I think I originally found this recipe on a Facebook feed, and let me tell you, it is seriously so darn good.  My kids never eat green beans, and they devour them when I make this!  You guys really need to try this!!!!
6 chicken breasts (not thin)
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
1 8oz container sour cream
3/4 soup can full of white cooking wine
1.  Place chicken breasts in 9x13 baking dish.
2.  Mix soup, sour cream, and cooking wine and pour over chicken.
3.  Sprinkle paprika over the top
4. Cover with foil and bake about one hour or until chicken is done
Serve with rice and enjoy!
My mom made this for us growing up, and it was always a favorite of mine and my brothers...I now make this for my family, and the all LOVE it!  It is delicious!
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 1/2 pound cut up broiler-fryer chicken
1.  Heat oven to 425.  Melt butter in a 9x13 pan while oven is heating.
2.  Mix flour, paprika, salt and pepper.  Coat chicken with flour mixture (I put it all in a freezer bag and shake the chicken in there).  Place chicken skin side down in pan.
3.  Bake uncovered 30 minutes, turn chicken and bake another 30 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink.
We make this often at our house, and they love eating it cold the next day!
*recipe and photo from Betty Crocker's cookbook
4 boneless chicken breasts
1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 tablespoon butter
1 medium green bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1.  Spray nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Sprinkle both sides of chicken with oregano, salt, garlic powder, pepper and red pepper.  Cook in skillet 8-10 minutes, turning once, until juice is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut.  Remove chicken from skillet and keep warm.
2.  Melt butter in skillet over medium heat.  Cook bell pepper and onion in butter, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until crisp and tender.  Stir in mushrooms.  Cook 3-5 minutes until veggies are tender.
3.  Place chicken in skillet, spoon veggies over chicken.  Sprinkle cheeses over chicken and vegetables; remove from heat.  Cover and let stand until cheese is melted.
This is another favorite at our house!  If you are looking for something to do with your chicken this week, try one of these! 
Be sure to check back tomorrow for my weekend wrap-up...Wednesday edition!  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by today!
