Provencal Chicken

Here is one simple technique that guarantees juicy results every time. First, pound the chicken: making it thinner ensures quick and even cooking. Next, dredge the chicken lightly in seasoned flour, which helps it turn deep golden brown when sauteed. After the chicken is cooked, deglaze the skillet with broth, wine or a little water to make a pan sauce. The liquid loosens the flavor-boosting browned bits from the bottom of the pan, making a tastier sauce.

Chicken Noodle Soup with Dill

Most versions of chicken noodle soup aren't in dire need of a makeover, though we did come across one with heavy cream and a cup of Parmesan when we were researching this book. It is however undeniably comfort food for many (especially sick) people and so we had to include it. And we were able to give it a little makeover--whole-wheat egg noodles as opposed to regular add fiber and nutrients and the reduced-sodium chicken broth cuts the sodium. By all means use homemade chicken broth if you have it.

Cream Cheese-&-Pesto-Stuffed Chicken Breasts

The hard part of making this elegant dish is choosing the filling. Making a pocket in the chicken breast to hold the stuffing is easy, particularly if you use a good, sharp, thin-bladed knife. Browning the chicken in a skillet before baking gives it a beautiful golden color. Finishing it in the oven ensures that it cooks evenly throughout.
