Thursday was Valentine’s Day and unlike last year I did not have anyone special someone to spend it with. So it got me thinking about last Valentine’s Day and my ex. Then I started thinking about how when we went out she would always order chicken tenders and fries or chicken parmesan. You can’t blame her because you can never go wrong with either. So, it got me thinking about the many ways a person can order chicken and I came up with my top 10 ways I like my chicken.
10. Chicken Salad:
Do you need a sandwich for lunch? Gather some chicken, cut it up and mix some mayonnaise up with it real well. Put it in between two pieces of whole wheat toast and you are all set.
9. BBQ Chicken on the Grill:
There is nothing like summer BBQs with the family. So many things are put the grill to cook. One that is always a favorite is chicken on the grill. Then the cook brushes some BBQ sauce on it for flavor and you are good to go.
8. Chicken Tenders:
There are many names for these. They can be branched out to three typical names: nuggets, fingers or tenders. You go out to a restaurant and you don’t want something big or expensive always look for the chicken tenders and fries basket. Never a disappointment.
7. Country Fried Chicken:
So unhealthy and yet so good at the same time. Nice crispy skin on a chicken leg makes for a night to forget about your diet.
6. Chicken Cordon Blue:
A thin piece of chicken wrapped around a slice of ham and swiss cheese then breaded and either baked or fried. A must try. Don’t like swiss? Order it with a different type of cheese!
5. Chicken Marsala:
Typically a chicken cutlet sautéed with mushrooms and a Marsala wine sauce. Don’t like mushrooms like me? Ask for no mushrooms or pick them away since they are usually pretty big.
4. Chicken Caesar Salad:
Fresh romaine lettuce, croutons, creamy Caesar dressing served with warm grilled chicken on top. Good for a lunch or a dinner.
3. Chicken Wings:
They have a competition for how many wings one person can eat. They don’t get much greater than that! You can just keep eating and eating and never realize how many you actually had. Many places cook them a few ways and are put in many different sauces today such as hot, BBQ, honey and so on and so on. They even have boneless wings now!
2. Chicken Noodle Soup:
… With a soda on the side. Ok, let me stop. But really how many times did you stay home sick and have your mom cook you up a nice hot bowl of chicken noodle soup? Perfect for the long frigid winters.
1. Chicken Parmesan:
This one is also a shoutout to my father who always orders this. How can you go wrong with chicken parmesan! A chicken cutlet breaded, with melted mozzarella cheese and marinara tomato sauce on top of a plate of spaghetti. Order this and you will never go home thinking you made the wrong choice.
