Here's a barbecue chicken recipe that you can try any day of the week. This easy dinner idea is baked in the oven for full barbecue flavor. The chicken always comes out perfectly every time and is never dry. Plus, this food idea is a super easy meal for busy weeknights. You can also prepare and bread the chicken ahead of time if you know you’ll have limited time in the evening. And the best part is the kids will love it, and will probably come back for more.

When preparing the chicken recipe, a good tip is to split the chicken breasts in half as to make them even throughout for even consistent cooking.

These days there are more chicken choices than ever before. It can be a bit overwhelming when you are trying to choose chicken for your easy dinner ideas and food ideas, and you aren't sure exactly which one to pick. In a general sense, organic free-range is a loose term for any system that does not use cages for their chickens and provides access to an outdoor area that is fenced in and may also have some netting or some fencing over it. Organic free-range chickens are housed in a stationary indoor space with nest boxes, along with perches and often have unlimited access to the fenced and netted outdoor space. Whereas pastured poultry is similar to organic free-range concerning access to the outdoor areas except the birds are typically housed in a mobile coop that has nest boxes, perches and shelter. The chicken coop is movable because if it and the flock were left in the same area, the pasture would then eventually be denuded by the poultry. A mobile coop can be easily moved around as necessary to a new patch of pasture, and that lets the older patch recover. In a typical pastured system for birds, the birds spend the night in the mobile coop and only have daytime access to the pasture. Keeping the chickens locked up at night reduces mortality from predators and is more secure than giving your chicken flock 24/7 access to the outdoors.
Advantages to raising poultry on pasture include reductions in feed cost and changes in the nutritional content and characteristics of eggs. Specifically, eggs from chickens that are pasture-raised have been reported to have higher levels of vitamin A and E, and omega-3 fatty acids. All of which are thought to be beneficial for human health. Pastured poultry has also been found to have about 33 percent less of the bad Omega-6 fat, 91 percent more of the good Omega-3 fat, and about 47 percent to about 80 percent better the Omega-6/Omega-3 ratio depending on the supplemental feed that the chickens are fed. Pastured chickens have about 407 percent more Vitamin E than CAFO chicken. You will find this easy dinner idea on the Crazy For Crust site.
