Look up Salsa Chicken on sparkrecipes. Really simple just salsa, chicken, a crock pot, and whatever else you want to toss in. Also kraftfoods.com has some really good, healthy chicken recipes. One of my favorites is Jerk Chicken, again really simple, especially if you have a Foreman grill or something similar.

You can check out my recipe collection for chicken:
My personal favs are the broccoli and chicken casserole (I add frozen corn to mine) and Chef Meg's chicken quesedilla with ranch greek yogurt sauce.
I also love allrecipes.com. They have some of the best recipes on the web. Here's their chicken section, you'll have recipes coming out the wazoo. Just revamp any recipe to fit your dietary needs but for the most part they're usually quite healthy, delicious and don't require ingredients you couldn't possibly have on hand in your kitchen:
3 Bonless, Skinless Chicken Breast halves 12 Prociutto slices, 2 Slices per half 6 Provolone slices, 1 Slice per half 18 Asparagus spears, trimmed 3 per half 1/4 cup of grated Romano Cheese 1 Package of Lawry's Tomato Sauce Packet 1 can diced tomatoes, drain juice into sauce 1/8 tsp. Pepper
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Halve each chicken breast and pound it to 1/4 inch thick. Place 2 slices of prociuuto and 1 slice of Provolone cheese onto each half and top with 3 aparagus spears. Roll each and secure with a toothpick. Make sauce per packet. Place chicken rolls into a square glass baking dish, top with Romano cheese, diced tomatoes and sauce from packet. Bake uncovered for 35- 45 minutes or until cooked through.

I take it you have loads of room in your freezer?
Here is what I do.
Make an Apricot/Chicken Casserole. I use heaps of lentils, finely chopped carrot, celery, onion, red and green bell peppers, and chop up some dried apricots. I use the baking ones for the flavour, but they break down, so I also use the dried dessert ones because they stay in pieces. It is yummy had with mashed potato, broccoli, cauliflower etc, and it also really nice with rice.
Make a tomato based casserole. Some I do with a hint of chilli and some I do with a wee bit of dried sweet basil. Great with rice or pasta.
Try a Chick Pea and chicken curry.
Turn some into ground chicken and make some meat balls/patties. If you do the patties large enough to cover a slice of bread you have a fantastic 'main' for a healthy sandwich just by adding some salad and cottage cheese. You can make them from frozen and let them thaw during the day for when you are ready to eat them. They are also great as the meat part of your main hot meal - very easily zapped while veges are cooking.
Have some frozen as pieces for baking ( frying using oil spray) coated in fine breadcrumbs and lemon pepper or Oat bran and Lemon Pepper.
Make some stir fries using lemon pepper as the main flavour base rather than the usual type.
They all freeze well, and if you do them in individual serve portions you will have a huge variety to choose from.
Finally .... GOOD SCORE :-)

It does require FRESH basil. Also "fish sauce." A couple "specialty" ingredients worth getting, to make this yummy dinner.
Another way I enjoy chicken breast is cut into strips, dipped lightly in beaten egg (or just egg white), rolled in Panko brand "Japanese Bread Crumbs" and then baked on a lightly oiled (can use Pam if desired) baking sheet for about 20 min, flipping once. Top with Franks Red Hot (or other "wing sauce") and it's almost "junky pub food tasty" while not being junky at all.

Find some topping/breadcrumbs that fit in your calories/sodium intake allowance. I use a cheap-o like shake n' bake so all I have to do is get the chicken wet and then dip into the topping.
Then bake in the oven until mostly done. After that, place in a casserole dish and cover with some marinara sauce and some mozzerella cheese until melted & heated through. Plate with an appropriate amount of pasta, chicken, sauce & cheese.
It's like a healthy chicken parm!! My husband loved this...and so did I!

Please help I brought two huge boxes of frozen chicken breast as it was on for a really good deal! But now I need dinner ideas for them. I already make stir fry, chicken ceaser salad, chicken tacos. Help running out of ideas
