How To Make Juicy & Tender Chicken: Every Time!

Whether skinless or boneless, sliced juicy chicken can not be beat! When overcooked, chicken can be tough chewy or dry. Here's a few tips on how to cook chicken finger-licking good every time!

  • To start, brine your chicken in a mixture of water and a few tablespoons of salt for about 20 to 30 minutes.

  • Using foil to cover the breast of the bird near the end of cooking can help prevent the meat from drying out and the skin from getting too brown.

  • Cook at a lower heat for longer to keep the chicken breast tender and juicy.

  • Bake just until internal temp reaches about 160º F, then let sit under foil to cook to a safe internal temp.

  • Line pan or baking sheet with foil or parchment paper for easy cleanup.

  • Olive oil keeps chicken moist and adds extra flavor.

If all fails and you find yourself with too-dry chicken, heat some broth in a pot or your microwave until it's hot but not boiling. Slice the chicken, and layer it into a shallow baking dish. Pour in the chicken broth, and keep the dish warm for 10 to 15 minutes in your oven or over a low burner.
