I agree on those must be some huge chicken breasts. IE I make a balsamic chicken dish with potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots and usually about 3 to 4 chicken breasts totally a little over a pound of meat and usually with my family of three, there is one serving left over.

Wow! those must be some huge chicken breasts. The ones that I get are about 6 oz. each, so make about 2 to three servings, depending on what I make with them. Would be three for stir-fry, pot pies, pasta sauce, curry etc, but only two for grilled, barbecue or baked. I do love chicken, though, and can usually find it at one store or another for under $2 a pound, so we have it 4 to 5 times a week. I season 3 or 4 in different ways and grill them up 4 at a time. Gives me a base for a couple of days meals and is really quick and easy. I particularly like doing curry or stir fry, since I can make extra to pack for a one-dish lunch with rice or noodles.
This weeks challege is going to be with chicken breast. I have 4 chicken breast which I'm going to make three meals with. First I bake 3 chicken breast then divide it up. For one meal I'm going to make chicken chow mein, chicken fried rice and chicken sandwiches. With the last chicken breast I make chicken strips with shake n bake. The chicken chow mein makes about 4 meals and the rice about two meals and my daughter has chicken sandwiches for lunch. I usually make these meals when the chicken breast is on sale. I always look forward for chicken chow mein. It has lots of vegetables, and it's one of my favorite meals. Thats my cooking challege for this week. Also another meal I made last week was chicken pot pie, with home made pastry. I made two pies, I freeze the other one for when I don't fell like cooking.
