I love to cook chicken. And a chicken fillet recipe is only the tip of the iceberg. I am very fussy about my chicken recipes. I know how to cook chicken, I really do. I can cook it dozens of ways, baked, fried, stewed, crock pot, roasted even boiled. Chicken is one of the most versatile ingredients on the planet. But like I said, I am really fussy about it. I don’t want it even a tiny bit under done. And I like flavor, not just cooked so it’s not raw. I want it to be sensational.
I thought since I love cooking and cooking with chicken is a favorite, then maybe I could share my recipesor recipes I find from others and create an atmosphere of great cooks sharing
I don’t consider myself a chef by any stretch of the imagination. I grew up in the south (Missouri) and my mom was a great cook. Talk about flavor… she had it all. I learned a lot of my cooking from her. And I don’t want you to think this is only going to be a blog about chicken recipes. No I sure know how to cook a lot more than that. I just had to get started somewhere, and the most versatile ingredient on the planet seemed just right.
So that is what I am doing with this blog. I am going to share my chicken fillet recipes and all my other chicken recipes, and even my other dinner recipes with you. I can show you how to cook chicken and make it taste great. And you’ll have fun doing it. And while we are at it, we can even fry up a burger. So let’s get started.
Be sure to introduce yourself if you like a recipe or share one of your own.

My dear friend and Foodie extraordinaire, Correen, has very generously offered to share her delicious Chicken Chili Recipe with us. Thank you Correen, as usual it is a pleasure to work with you.
Once you have cooked my chicken chili recipe let it simmer low and slow, stirring occasionally, so all the flavors meld and the chicken and beans grab onto the savory mix of spices and seasonings.
- Add in remaining ingredients, gently stirring to incorporate all the ingredients. Bring to a boil, turn heat down to medium and slow simmer uncovered for 1 ½ hours. Occasionally stir, making sure nothing is sticking to the bottom of the pot.
- Note: To thicken this chicken chili recipe, this step might not be necessary after slow simmering, mix two tablespoons of masa harina (corn masa flour) with four tablespoons of water to make a thick paste. Stir in ½ the mixture and continue simmering, if chili still is not as thick as you like it add the remaining corn flour paste.
- *About the cooked beans - I used an eight bean blend, cooked to al dente. Feel free to use any mix of beans that you and your family prefer. Canned beans can also be used, just make sure to drain and rinse the beans in a colander.
It fills me with joy to share the different things I’m whipping up in my kitchen. Besides the article here, I’m also growing my online presence and passion for cooking and foodies over at FoodLoversWebsite. I encourage you to check it out, give me a shout if you are interested in getting together for an interview or if you would like to be a guest author.

A Delicious quick and easy Chicken Fillet Recipe. But don’t be deceived, a wonderful depth of flavor your entire family will enjoy.
2/3 cup mayonnaise
zest of 1/2 lemon
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
1 large garlic clove, crushed or grated
One package of chicken fillets, pounded thin (or as many as you need)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Prepare sauce: Whisk together the first 5 ingredients and set aside.
Prepare chicken: Place chicken fillets between heavy plastic wrap or inside a plastic food bag. Lightly pound with the flat side of a meat mallet or the bottom of a small cast iron pan, pounding lightly and working your way from the center to the edge until chicken fillet is even thickness. Salt and pepper each fillet, both sides.
Lightly oil grill grate or rack and set grill temperature to medium. These chicken fillets will cook very quickly, be sure to plan to stay with them while cooking.
When grill is up to temperature, arrange the chicken on the grill and bring the sauce out.
Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes or until you have nice grill marks on the chicken.
Flip and brush the cooked side with sauce, leaving the chicken on the grill for about 3 or 4 minutes more.
Flip and again brush the top with sauce and leave the chicken on the grill this time for about 1 or 2 minutes more. Chicken should feel firm when squeezed with tongs. It is actually better and I recommend that you use a meat thermometer, and cook to an internal temperature for chicken of 165 degrees.
Remove from grill and let sit for 3 or 4 minutes before serving.
This chicken fillet recipe is delicious, simple and quick to prepare. Serve with your favorite sides and Enjoy!
