Chicken seems to be among the easiest protein choices for meals, especially the uber popular boneless, skinless chicken breasts. With veggies, it’s a quick stir-fry. With some lettuce, a salad. Have half a pita? You have a sandwich.
However, because the meat is so lean (those same breasts, in particular) it’s actually quite hard to get right. These tips and techniques may help you turn your sad slab of chicken into one of the most delicious meals you make.
It almost goes without saying: Americans love chicken. Each year, the average American eats more than 90 pounds of the bird.
Simple-to-prepare cuts like boneless, skinless chicken breasts and pre-sliced cutlets and tenders reign supreme in popularity. Less expensive poultry picks like chicken thighs and drumsticks still cluck along in favorite dishes, from fried chicken to baked casseroles.
