    Cooking chicken

    I had some chicken at Whole Foods today and theirs is so soft and flaky YUM! Mine is always harder and kind of chewy. I cook it in a pan. Is that because they add fat to it?
    Is there a way I can make it not so hard and chewy without adding fat to it? All I have to use is a cooking pan or a pot (no oven or grill).

    Thanks

    pam cooking spray?


    or

    lighty coat a pan with some olive oil. place the chicken in it. add a small amount of water to cover the bottom of the pan. then begin cooking. after a few minutes. dump the water out in the sink, place the pan back on the burner, lower the flame and cover it.

    a small amount of oil will get cooked off. or dumped out if you do it my way.

    or use cooking spray.

    Want soft and easy made chicken? Here is what I do:

    I grab a bag of frozen tenderloins from Costco. I throw the entire bag into a crockpot and set it on low. I also throw in two jars of Jalapeno and Lime Salsa that I grabbed from Trader Joe's. Let it cook for a day, stirring around 3 or 4 times throughout the day. Next morning take the chicken out and put it in containers for the week. Now you have a bunch of almost overly moist chicken with a hint of jalapeno and lime. Mix with whatever you want to. It is one of the easiest ways to cook chicken, IMO.


    can you tell that I'm a bachelor?

    I've never really paid attention to the cooked food at Whole Foods. but I know it makes a huge difference when cooking broiling chicken breasts when the skin is still on while cooking. I usually get some chicken breasts with the skin and cook them when I need a little something tastier to eat.
