Whenever my boyfriend and I eat chicken, 1 hour later, we're still hungry. Even if we eat twice the amount than we would with beef/pork.
The last time I placed an order at the butcher, I accidentally ordered too much chicken, and I know we're going to be hungry!
So, what tricks do you use to make chicken more filling?
Things I've tried that work well:
* Cooking with bacon fat.
* Cooking with bacon fat AND adding bacon to it.
* Cooking with coconut milk.
* Cooking with chicken bone stock.
Any other ideas?

I'm just annoyed that in every question I post no one really seems to read the question before posting so they just post the same thing I already said. Like:
Title: Are there other ways to prepare eggs?
Details: Other than frying and poaching.
Answer #1 Fried eggs are really good.
Answer #2 You could poach them?
Do you know how excruciating it is to see the orange envelope, get excited "Yay! Someone answered my question, I want to see what they say!" and then they just repeat what I said already? It makes me so sad!
It's not like someone is paying you $20 just to post! (If someone is, how can I get in on that?)
I've used the bacon/bacon fat methods and I've also used salsa with it in the slow-cooker to make it more tender and satisfying. That works good as long as I have the whole bird to pick from.
In general, the only way chicken is filling for me is if I eat a few bites of skinless chicken breast--that's more than enough (I'm kidding, because I'd head straight for the fridge for some beef.)
EDIT: I'm not sure what else you're looking for with your revised title, but in addition to the bacon/salsa options already mentioned above you could include sweet potatoes or other starchy options. You could also make dishes that are half chicken, half beef.
Is that what you wanted?
Cream sauce with mushrooms on chicken is awesome, and like doubles the fat content of the dish (which can help make it more filling).
Actually the other night my husband made a crazy yogurt/garlic/tumeric marinade. It was amazing and I had 2 tiny drumsticks for breakfast and could barely eat anything else all day. I think it was a combination of the fat and the massive dose of spice (there was a LOT of garlic in it) which can make me feel fuller than I otherwise would. I probably also dumped tabasco on it (I dump tabasco on everything).
I always drain away the chicken fat from cooking and add melted butter. It improves the omega 6/3 ratio and makes the meal very filling with the added fat. Before I started this improvement, we found that the chicken wasn't filling also.
Second the chicken+guac+avocado treatment.
Serve in lettuce wraps like a taco and eat until properly full.
My wife and I will eat a whole head of bib lettuce with this config, regardless if it is chicken, pork, or shredded beef.
Also, my wife makes Adobo using coconut aminos in place of soy and half the vinegar, using apple cider vinegar instead and substituting the other half with lime juice. Simmered for several hours with the bones and skin, and you have fantastic shredded chicken that is super flavorful. I ate this the other night with avocados and purple cabbage mango slaw, it was awesome.
I generally eat my bacon wrapped chicken, over a bed of creamed spinach. Lately I have been eating this almost twice a week, my whole family loves it.
Otherwise, I usually eat it in/on a salad.
Or in a white chili - Also delicious.
Sometimes I dice or shred it to make a curry chicken/egg salad combo.
I don't actually enjoy chicken all that much, but I do like it in Thai coconut-based curries. Those are pretty filling, but probably due to the coconut milk and not the chicken itself.
Coconut oil is the answer to everything.
I grill chicken, then put it on a kale salad, then I melt a fat tablespoon of coconut oil and pour it over the whole thing with a little balsamic vinegar. Not bad.
I usually just add copious amounts of fat in some way, but I've also had success adding spice and heat, particularly in the summer months, and just enjoying a lean meal with lots of greens and chicken breast. Chicken laab is a regular summer dish for us, and the fresh bold flavors keep me satisfied.
