A word about chicken

Chicken is my favorite meat. It is low in fat and calories and is so versatile. It can be used in a soup, stew, salad, baked, fried, boiled, braised and broiled. I'm sure there are other ways to prepare it that I haven't mentioned. Where else can you find something so delicious that is good for you? It is universally known as a good food for those who are dieting. Of course, you can't have the fried version but the grilled, baked, broiled, and boiled are great too. Chicken is one of the most versatile meats there is.

I have put together a few recipes that I have found to be winners with my family. They are fairly inexpensive, easy to make and absolutely delicious. For the recipes with vegetables that need chopping, it cuts preparation time down to practically nothing when you use a food chopper or food processor. My food chopper is used many, many times a week. It has become a very valuable tool in my kitchen.
