There are many times when I am making a recipe and it calls for cooked chicken. For years, I could never seem to cook chicken properly (to taste good) until I came across this tip. I found the tip when I made this AMAZING Cajun Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo recipe.
Here are the steps to making moist, cooked chicken:
Step 1: Make sure your skinless chicken breast is defrosted.
Step 2: Place a skinless breast in a ziplock bag and place on top of a cutting board. Make sure to close the bag.
Step 3: Pound the chicken breast flat.
Step 4: This would be a good time to preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Step 5: Season the chicken (I usually use Tony Chachere’s).
Step 6: On medium heat, use olive oil and sear the chicken for 3 1/2 minutes on one side and 1 1/2 minutes on the other side.
Step 8: Place on a baking sheet and cook in the oven for about 10-15 minutes. 11-12 minutes seems just right if the chicken is not that large. You have to gauge depending on the size.
