    I've always had good luck with allrecipes.com. Have you checked out that site? I like how they list the nutritional content for all recipes.

    I just use lemon/pepper seasoning from the store. I sprinkle on both sides and sautee each side for about 4-5 minutes on medium heat. Its way quick and satisfying. Anyone have a better "recipe" or method?

    I usually coat both sides with lemon peel (fresh grated or dried), fresh ground pepper, and a little sea salt. Then just grill or broil those suckers. Usually I serve them with steamed vegetables (broccoli & carrots is the default) and drizzle just a tiny bit of ranch dressing over the whole plate. Toast with honey on the side.

    The "fat" thing was a 1970's bad science myth. The skin is really good for anybody that works out and has gotten off of junk carbs and processed sugar.
    Roast an entire organic chicken and get several meals, and a pot of soup by boiling the carcass, .

    Wash the bird inside and out and dry it. Sprinkle it breast side up with coarse salt and then coat with olive oil. Stuff garlic cloves under the skin and put a punctured lemon in the cavity.

    Soak your boneless chicken in 1/2 cup olive oil and 1/4 cup lemon juice.
    add two bay leaves, a dash of pepper and salt. Soak over nite.

    next day mix 1/4 cup soy sauce with 1/4 cup vinegar.....add 1/2 white onions chopped and set mix aside.

    While grilling your chicken base the mixture on the chicken meat as you go along and until chicken is cooked.

    goes well with hot rice/ chop it up and eat it with a roll and some olive oil and balsamic vinegar. enjoy.

    One of my favorite recipes: lemon feta chicken. salt, pepper, oregano, a little olive oil, and garlic on the chicken then put it in a pan. Sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese and pour a little lemon juice over the whole thing and bake until its done. Pair it with some spinach, rice, or orzo pasta.

    Marinate it in hot water and liquid crab boil ( Tony Chachere's) for about 30 minutes. Toss some cajun spice or lemon/pepper before grilling. Make you want to slap your Mama.

    Don't bother asking me... I tried to put marinade spices on one of those insta-tuna fillets last night. Bad results followed.

    You can also try a crumbing technique.

    Use the lemon & pepper spice mix you would get in the store, add some chopped basil and if you can get it, lemon myrtle (an Australian bush fruit).

    Using a handful of corn flakes or the like, put into a plastic bag and roll out with a rolling pin, crushing the flakes down.

    Add the spice mix and pour out onto a plate.

    Whisk a whole egg until the yolk and the white are blended. Place onto another plate.

    With your skinless chicken, first put onto the plate with the beaten egg and coat.
    Then place onto the plate with the spice mix and coat entirely.

    Into an oven at 180C for 15-20 minutes.

    Yum.

    I looked up info on this.

    I did however find an article (with no citations) saying cooking chicken with the skin was nutritionally no different than cooking it without provided you only ate the meat.

    I usually rub the breasts with lemon pepper seasoning and then sautee in a bit of olive oil and garlic, adding some lemon juice to keep it moist. I usually brown both sides first and then complete the cooking with the lid on to keep in the moisture. Works every time, is quick, simple and tastes great!
