In my opinion, low sugar Marinades are your secret weapon here. This way you won't have to saute them in butter or oils, but the flavor will be drenched in your chicken overnight! Grilling or baking would be your best cooking styles for low fat, combined with lots of vegetables, fresh herbs, low sodium stocks or broths, and simple seasonings. Some of your more complex seasonings (i.e., McCormick's Chicken Seasoning, for example only) is full of salt and preservatives and "other ingredients", and that does not vote well for Low Fat/Caloric intake, although I love this seasoning, I use it sparingly. Now, they are coming out with low sodium ones, thank God but I'm fan of either store bought marinades with a smaller list of chemical inducements or my own ones. I wish you the best of luck eating healthier and losing fat but gaining muscle by exercising and being more active!

Michael, congrats on the weight loss.
Watch the length of time you marinate in any acid. The chicken can become sort of mushy. Keep the time to 30 minutes or so. You can add everything else and marinate overnight then about 30 minutes before you cook remove the chicken from the refrigerator and add the vinegar and allow to come to room temperature. Cooking the meat once it comes to room temperature is better anyway.
Sounds like your other chicken recipe would be a bit too hot for me with the crushed red pepper and the cayenne.
One that I like doing is slice the chicken and saute. Remove the chicken from the pan just as it gets some color. Add sliced onions and peppers and cook until almost tender. Add the chicken back into the pan and then add a half jar of your favorite salsa and cook until the chicken is done. Since you have the onions and peppers and the salsa I have fed 2 or 3 people with 1 large chicken breast. A bit of rice to go with it if you want and I use the rest of the salsa for part of the liquid for the rice. Adds some calories but not much.
By the way the worry about salmonella is more from the chicken not the veggies. But as long as the chicken is cooked properly you have little to worry about. Just make sure you wash the cutting board and your knife and hands after handling raw chicken. Almost better to cut the veggies first then the chicken.
looking for the benefits of salmon but you dont feel comfortable cooking fish try canned salmon as a simple and affordable alternative

Prepare your chicken and coat in a mixture of flour and garlic/rosemary, or other seasonings you like; dip in egg and then coat in flour again. Lay down a tiny bit of oil in the pan, enough to coat the bottom, and being to fry.
Then, put some white rice on to boil in some chicken broth (you can use a bouillon cube). Cut up red peppers, mushrooms, and carrots, and add snowpeas; add to the chicken cooking and stir, making sure to flip the chicken over. Sprinkle some fresh or dried garlic over the mixture and cook until the chicken is done. Serve atop the rice and you're done.
Also, try grilled chicken sandwiches. Grill your chicken and add it to toasted bread with lettuce, tomatoes, and light mayonaise. It's delicious and so easy to make.

You can reduce the calories/fat by making substitutions. Use ground turkey instead of hamburger, use low-fat cottage cheese instead of real[my recipe uses cottage cheese] or ricotta. Make your own sauce and use sugar substitute instead of the real thing. Find some recipes that are more veggie than cheese and meat.

Apart from fish and chicken why not try some chick pea recipes. They are a cheap low fat low calorie high fibre form of protein. You can substitute them for meat in caseroles. chickpea curry is wonderful (just google the recipe) and you can serve them mixed with vegetables and dried apricots with cous cous flavoured with a veg stock cube and any other seasoning to your taste.
lentils again are a low calorie low fat form of protein. You can make lentil soup. lentil (daal) curry or substitute them partly or wholly for meat in stew and casseroles. you can also make a great lentil and nut roast to substitute for a joint of meat (just google it fot the recipe - and its cheap and feeds the whole family for a fraction of the price pf a joint).
There is nothing wrong with eating lean cuts of pork ot beef on your diet also - it doesn;t have to be just fish or chicken.
