    Anyone have the best chicken recipe? Roasted, baked, chopped, marinated. ANYTHING! I am looking for a recipe I could use frequently. It can take as long as you want. Anything will do, as long as it tastes amazing.

    My favorite thing to do with chicken is cook it whole on the stove, slow simmering a good 2- 3 hours- or till it falls apart when you move it. The bulk of the breast meat is the 1st meal along with mashed taters & green beans. With the leftover broth and meat I either make soup or a chicken & dumplings type dish. You take the remaining meat, thicken the broth, add your favorite veggies and put in a casserole dish. Take bisquick mix and add milk till it has the consistency of thick oatmeal. Use the bisquick to make a ring around your casserole dish and bake until the bisquick is golden brown. Very yummy, it always reminds me of my grandma- she used to make that with leftover Thanksgiving turkey.

    My go to on a busy work night uses boneless, skinless chicken breasts. We call it Cracker Chicken
    Turn on oven to 400 degrees.
    Cut the chicken into pieces about 1 inch in size. Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray with oil (makes clean-up easy)
    Crush 1/2 sleeve of saltine crackers ( ritz or townhouse work well also). Add seasoned salt (Lowry's is what I use) and garlic powder to taste. Mix it up so it tastes slightly over seasoned.
    Mix 1 egg and 2 tablespoons milk. Dip chicken then coat with cracker crumbs.
    Place on cookie sheet with at least 1/2 inch space between pieces.
    Spray lightly with oil.
    Bake for 5 min. Turn pieces over and bake another 5-7 minutes.

    Serve with dipping sauce on the side.

    Not so much as a recipe but a different way of cooking meat.
    My mother use to take a deep roaster and put about an inch or so of clean rock salt. She would then place her chicken or toughest meat (couldnt afford prime cuts) into the center of the bed of clean rock salt then cover the meat entirely of the salt. Making sure no meat was exposed. Cooked it about two hours on approximately a 375 degree oven. Walked away...and when done she broke the salt encrusted meat and placed on a platter. One would think it would be inedible but not so...so tender it fell off bone.
    I think my mo got this way of cooking from David Wade cooking show .
    Love it and I still at times cook a chicken or roast this way.
    Kind regards
