Quick Chicken Recipes

With all the things we need to get accomplished each day cooking a good meal seems to fall by the sidelines. It's not a lot of fun to be rushing around all day working, then come home and have to rush around in the kitchen. There you are surrounded by a hungry family who expects you to come up with a feast. What do you do? Call for a pizza? I know, bundle everyone back into the car and head for the closest fast food joint. WRONG! You try one of my recipes that are fast and easy to make, delicious to eat, and won't cost you an arm and a leg.

By the way, all of these recipes can be put together within minutes and you can relax, take a shower, or just have a cup of coffee while they are cooking. Enjoy.
