Thread: My breasts are dry.

    Default My breasts are dry.

    When chicken breasts go on sale for 99 cents/lb. I usually get some.
    Problem is if they are tender and juicy they are undercooked and gives
    me stomach problems. Otherwise they are dry and tough.

    What are some things I can do so they are cooked and yet juicy and
    tender?

    Brine 'em. Type "brining chicken breasts" into a search engine
    and you'll get hundreds of hits with various recipes and suggestions.
    Here is one link that explains it a bit:

    The simplest method of keeping your chicken moist and juicy is to add
    liquid during the cooking process so that they still have moisture in
    them when they're done. When the pan starts to dry out, add a bit of
    water or chicken stock or white wine to it so that the breasts are
    sitting in some liquid. Then you'll hopefully end up with
    'self-saucing' chicken. If you're grilling or roasting them and you
    can't add any more liquid DURING the cooking, soak them in a nice
    juicy marinade first, or baste them with plenty of liquid while
    they're on the grill.

    Guess I'm going to have to try soaking first. I'm already cooking it
    with rice in a rice cooker. You'd think the steam would be moist
    enough.

    Chicken breasts are not nearly as forgiving as people think,
    especially if your using skinless/boneless. Most of the fat in the
    chicken is under the skin. If you remove the skin, you're removing
    the fat which keeps the meat juicy. But if you're cooking it with
    rice, the skin wouldn't have a very good texture.

    Here are a couple of things that come to mind:

    1. It sounds like you're overcooking them a bit.

    2. You can also use an injector. It's like a big, huge syringe for
    your marinade. Just be sure you're wearing an old shirt when you
    inject it.

    Hope this helps,

    Ken

    Best headline of the day.

    Try brining them. A typical brine will consist of a gallon of water,
    a cup of kosher salt, 1/2 cup raw sugar (or brown sugar), 1/4 cup
    honey, garlic cloves, thyme, peppercorns, allspice berries, a bay leaf
    or two, and maybe a jalapeno.

    Bring the water to a boil and add everything. Stir to dissolve the
    salt and sugar. Cook for about five minutes at a simmer. Remove from
    heat and let stand till it's room temperature. Then refrigerate. (NB
    this will make too much brine for only a few chicken breasts, so you
    may need to halve the recipe) When it's chilled, soak the chicken in
    it for about an hour or two. Remove the chicken. Discard the brine.

    Roast the chicken as you would normally.

    Slice lengthways into 2-3 cutlets... bread and fry with medium heat
    until just a light golden brown, like three minutes each side. Do not
    ever pound cutlets, that's what makes them dry like shoe leather.

    Bake them in the oven with a slice of bacon on top. The bacon will
    'baste' the chicken breast and impart a pretty nice flavor too.

    TY, Dams ;D If the bacon slice is too long for the chicken breast, just
    fold it over into a "V" to cover all of the breast - or cut the bacon
    slice to fit. The more bacon coverage the better <giggle>.

    I make a turkey meatloaf that is covered with raw bacon before it goes
    into the oven. Long strips, from end to end... I use more than the
    recipe calls for, but damn! That stuff *makes* the meat loaf!

    A woman at work told me how they baste their Thanksgiving turkey. Once
    you get the turkey ready to bake, you drape some bacon strips on it. As
    the bacon cooks, it bastes the turkey. However, the bacon cooks
    quickly, and you don't want it to burn, so you take the turkey out, eat
    the bacon and put new strips of bacon on. Well, it doesn't take long
    and it's time to eat the old bacon and put on the new. By the time the
    turkey is done, you just put it away to eat another day, since everybody
    is all full of bacon!

    My BILs who were raised in the Philippines were just talking last
    night about how much port fat they could get for a penny (when they
    were kids) AND get something else tossed into the deal. I felt like I
    was talking to my grandparents. LOL
