Some ideas for cooking chicken include baking, sautéing, frying, grilling and roasting. Each cooking method varies according to the cut and type of chicken meat.
To make the baked chicken recipe on BettyCrocker.com, heat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Melt 1 tablespoon butter or margarine in the oven in a 9- by 13-inch baking dish. Mix together 2/3 cup biscuit mix, 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika, 1 1/4 teaspoons salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Coat a cut-up 3 to 3 1/2 pound chicken with the seasoning mixture. Place chicken pieces skin side down in baking dish containing the hot butter. Bake 35 minutes, turn chicken pieces and bake 15 minutes longer or until centers are no longer pink.
To make sautéed chicken breast halves, pat four skinless, boneless chicken breast halves dry, trimming away any fat with kitchen shears. To flatten the chicken for fast cooking, place each chicken breast between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet’s flat side until it is the preferred thickness. Sprinkle chicken breasts with desired amounts of salt, ground black pepper, lemon-pepper seasoning or any other favorite seasonings. Heat 1 or 2 tablespoons oil or butter in heavy skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, reduce heat to medium and add chicken breast halves. Cook for eight to 12 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink, turning over twice.
