If you, like many other people, resolved that this was the year you would try to streamline and simplify your life -- in order to enjoy the things that really matter -- this delicious, simple menu will have great appeal.The main dish takes advantage of that contemporary favorite, the boneless chicken breast, fancied up with sumptuous stuffing. The baking time may seem surprisingly short, but basically you are popping the entree at room temperature into a very hot oven (if you prepare the chicken ahead and then refrigerate it, you'll need to allow additional baking time)

A good break from the ubiquitous deboned, skinned chicken breasts are thighs. They can do about anything breasts can do, but will cook faster and have a richer flavor. This dish with chicken thighs can be cooked in one skillet and served in one bowl. When wilting the arugula, take care not to overcook. This green is tender and will lose all character if wilted as long as spinach. A little balsamic vinegar adds a lot of flavor, its sweetness complementing the chicken and the arugula. Cooking the onion just briefly allows it to keep its crunch, a nice contrast to the tender chicken.

Friends know that I love to plan menus, so they call me routinely for advice about what to serve at their dinner parties. This past week, for example, an assistant who helps me test recipes came to work with a request. She had volunteered to take care of her 8-year-old niece and 13-year-old nephew while her sister and husband took a weekend vacation. The kids, my pal explained, loved to cook but were picky eaters, so she was searching for foods they would enjoy helping her prepare, then sample on Friday and Saturday nights.

This quick entree has its roots in the Italian city of Rome where fresh tiny artichokes are a specialty. While you won't find that particular variety locally, any size artichokes make a very flavorful stuffing for that favorite -- boneless, skinless chicken breasts.Orzo pasta is a simple side dish that cooks in about 6 minutes. Enhance it with capers, chopped sun-dried tomatoes or serve it simply with just a drizzle of olive oil. Fresh steamed zucchini and carrots add color and texture to the meal.

THAWING TAKES time. Often I feel like a captive of frozen crystals, waiting for some frozen hunk of protein to gradually abandon its rigid state and be ready to be tossed in the oven or on the grill. As an impatient thawer, I have employed a variety of techniques to hurry the process along. I have become a prier, forcing frozen pieces apart with a knife, to allow air to circulate and do its liberating work. Occasionally, very occasionally, I have planned around the thaw, placing a frozen chicken in the refrigerator early in the morning, so it will be safely defrosted in time for the evening meal.

Nadine Taylor of Ellicott City lost one of her favorite recipes for making grilled or roasted chicken gremolata. She took the recipe card with her to the grocery store and left it in her cart by mistake. She says she has been unable to re-create the chicken dish that was so well liked by her family and friends. Carol Anne Cassady of Bel Air e-mailed me a recipe she had from Gourmet magazine for lemon pepper chicken with thyme gremolata that she has used for years. A gremolata is a classic Italian garnish most commonly made with minced parsley or thyme, lemon peel and garlic.

Late in the afternoon, a time of day when many teenagers were chilling, those in Wendy Parker Robinson's class were still in school, still sweating. Clad in chef's whites, they were chopping squash, searing chicken breasts, forming balls of goat cheese and beautifying butter. They were getting ready to feed 200 people dinner at the National Academy Foundation High School, housed on the Digital Harbor campus in Federal Hill. It was the school's first Restaurant Night, when students in its hospitality and tourism classes would serve a three-course meal to anyone quick enough to book a reservation.

Running back and forth between the grill outside and the kitchen stove can be a drag when you just want to get dinner done quickly and maybe enjoy the colors playing across the sky as the sun goes down. This dinner attempts to minimize the back and forth. You do most of the prep before you throw the corn on the grill. Then once the ears are on, return to the kitchen one more time to prep the chicken. Next, the chicken and zucchini share space on the grate with the corn - and you can enjoy a beer.

Bette Thomas of Lawrenceville, N.J., was searching for a recipe for sour cream fried chicken. After some Web research, I located a recipe on the HP Hood products Web site, hood.com. This recipe uses boneless chicken breasts, which makes it fairly fast and easy to prepare. I made the marinade in the morning and let the breasts soak all day, although the recipe says one hour is enough time. It's important to pound the breasts thin and to be sure you press the bread-crumb mixture into the chicken; otherwise, it may fall off as it fries.

Ruth Toro of Towson was looking for a recipe called "President Reagan's Favorite Chicken." She said it was published some years ago, and was easy and delicious. Undoubtedly, there are many versions of what is believed to be the late president's favorite chicken dish. We received several different ones from our readers. I liked the sound of the one sent in by Tina Smith of Wagram, N.C. It came from a collection of favorite recipes from the Army Officers' Wives Club of the Greater Washington Area.

In October, during a trip to Italy with friends, we took a cooking lesson with Lelia Passi, a vivacious Italian who lives in a palace overlooking Venice's Grand Canal. Our host was unpretentious and charming -- just like her food. She shepherded us into her kitchen where we helped prepare the night's dishes. The main course consisted of tender baked chicken breasts, topped with Fontina and prosciutto, all napped with a creamy porcini mushroom sauce. This entree was Passi's contribution, and she included the directions for it with our packet of recipes.

Tasty sauces coat fillets of chicken Item: Easy Beginnings Chicken Breasts What you get: 4 servings Cost: About $5 Preparation time: 1 minute in microwave, 10 to 12 minutes in conventional oven Review: These chicken breast fillets are not exactly the "restaurant quality" advertised on the label (unless you frequent restaurants that serve chicken breasts that have been processed to include rib meat). Easy Beginnings fillets are handy nonetheless. Fully cooked and coated with tasty sauces, they heat quickly.

In the summer, I get lazy when it comes to making supper. I want something that doesn't require much fussing. It doesn't have to be fast, but it does have to deliver flavor, without making the cook sweat. I came up with such a dish the other day. I call it yellow chicken. You put a whole bird on a barbecue grill. You mop it with a sauce made with yellow mustard and peppers. You let nature, mostly smoke, fire and sauce, do the rest. This is not speedy fare; I let my chicken sit next to that slow fire for a little more than 3 hours.

What is it about men and the grill? I've never met one who didn't love just about anything cooked over hot coals. It seemed logical, then, in preparation for Father's Day, to cull my files for something special seared over an open fire. When I found the recipe for Grilled Lemon Chicken With Tomato and Olive Rice, I knew I had an answer. The dish is colorful, vibrantly flavored and so simple that young children can don aprons and help out with the cooking. A blending of fresh lemon juice and olive oil seasoned with garlic and bay leaves is used to marinate plump boneless chicken breasts for a couple of hours.
