I have no cooking experience at all and I'm looking to prepare my own meals... I was wondering what kind of chicken in what kind of portions people buy? And what's the quickest and easiest way to make them? Step by step? Thanks.

1 buy frozen chicken breast in bulk. either thaw in microwave first or thaw overnight in fridge.
2 boiling them would be quickest but less tastefull.
3 skip 2 and heat frying pan and spray with zero cal cooking spray or olive oil.
4 sprinkle with favorite seasoning... all season, paprika, salt, pepper, garlic salt, onion powder, cajun seasoning, etc
5 once pan is hot (medium heat) put chicken in pan and cook about 5 min on each size. may vary depending on size of breast. till it is white and no pink in middle.
6 serve with rice, pasta, or whatever you want. you could make into sandwiches if you desire.
I can give you much better recipes but that is the quickest way.
if you are boiling rice you can throw in the thawed breast (medium size) when you are about 5-7 minutes from you rice being done (needs some amount of water in rice to cook chicken properly). also adding terriaki sauce or soy or hot sauce adds flavor. you can add lots of seasoning to the boil or add onions mushrooms, peppers etc in the mix.

If you boil it and pull the breast apart in a bowl with a fork until its almost like shreds, you can add some bbq and make a shredded bbq chicken sandwich on wheat bread/bun, tastes delicious.MTS Nutrition Houston rep.

I put 3 or 4 frozen chicken breast in a crockpot with some water just to barely cover the chicken. Throw some spices on it and let it cook for a couple hours or untill down. Then refrigerate the rest and eat them throughout the week.
Or sometimes i just ask my mom too!

What I have been doing with my chicken is thawing a bunch of breasts out overnight in the fridge and then cutting them up into smaller pieces. Then I use a little olive oil and get the chicken covered and let the oil oil soak into the chicken first before heating it up. You do not want to heat the oil too high before it is absorbed into the chicken or you will lose the good properties of the healthy fats. Also you can use a small amount of marinade in the stir fry or use other favorite spices.
Also I have been putting veggies such as brocoli, onions, mushrooms, green peppers, red peppers, garlic, etc. in the pan as well and making a great stir fry out of that. If you are trying to do it on less time then make a huge amount of food all at one time that will last you a few days.i rep back 1k+
