Sounds nice that.

I throw a kilo in a tray with crushed garlic and bake the lot, i'll try tin foil next time as it comes out a bit dry.

I put mine in tinfoil and sprinkle seasoning over them, 20mins each side. Or if im in a rush, wack them on a large flat pan with a little extra virgin olive oil, this way they only take about 8-10mins. Yumm!

slice them in half and rub with some spice then gril either in george foreman or grill in oven. takes around 3/5 mins on george foreman maybe slightly longer in oven grill.

slicing them in half so they are thiner makes them cook twice as quick

I put them in a glass pot with the lid on, bit of oil and they come out moist and good. Maybe a bit of jerk depending

foil in the baking tray, fan oven on about 180C frozen breasts onto the foil, give them a good coating of chilli powder then bake them for 35 minutes. Spicy and moist for me mate.

Also use cajun spices some weeks.

Easy usually means quick but if you wrap each fillet in a nice, dry smoked streaky bacon, sprinkle a pinch of your favourite herb (or leave them two together) then chuck em' in @200 for 35-40 minutes you eat like a king (or queeen...) plus M&S has pre-cooked BROWN rice in a micro waveable bag for £1-ish. Quick and cheap and trust me, TASTY!

Enjoy. Oh, btw, cooking time depends if you have large or regular ones. :D

I poach mine - done in 20 mins and keeps them moist which is important for bulk cooking.

Wrapped in bacon for me too in foil, keeps em juicy.

For a change, try whisking a couple of eggs and a large dollop of garlic puree, dips the breasts in then coat in breadcrumbs, bake on a tray(not in foil) for 25mins. Garlic chicken yum yum.

Dice the chicken breast, throw it in a frying pan or wok with a splash of olive oil. 5 minutes later add some mixed stir fry veg. (I get mine from Sainsbury's you just open the bag and throw some in). Add a splash of soya sauce and 3mins later its done.

If you want some carbs in there too, add some noodles at the end and cook for a further 2 minutes.

put some random herbs n spices over it then bang it on a george forman grill. takes me 8 minutes but depending on how thick the steak is. if you havnt got one i strongly reccomend investing in one! time saver

If i'm not in a rush, I do the same- The George foreman is pretty handy, but it tastes allot better slowly cooked in the oven with spices IMO.
