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.
