    Grilling Chicken vs. Boiling Chicken

    Up until now I've been grilling my chicken. I eat very healthy so nutrition is not a problem for me, however I have been hearing a lot of people say that it's better to boil the chicken.

    I've never boiled my chicken breasts to be honest but I'm wondering if there is a huge difference nutritional wise when you compare grilled chicken (on the BBQ) to boiled chicken?

    Also... When people do boil their chicken I'm assuming they don't marinade it or put anything on it correct? Do they just eat it boiled without any taste or flavor to it?

    Thanks in advance guys!

    The only reason I could think that you would want to boil chicken breasts is if you are doing a mass quantity.

    Or if you are parboiling it and finish cooking with another method

    I'm not really sure, but I would think it might be worse to boil it. When you boil vegetables they lose a lot of nutrients compared to steaming them. Plus boiled chicken would be rubbery.

    Boiling, from my experience, makes the chicken more soft. It's amazing having boiled chicken with rice and soy sauce.

    I boil my chicken 90% of my time for convenience purposes. I get a big ass pot and just put 10 of them suckers in there and just leave em. They don't taste as good as grilled but I eat food for function, not taste.

    I cook my breast on the stove with non-stick skillet. I season it with the following...old bay, season salt, pepper and some BAM! (for those of you who watch the food network) I use a little olive oil as well. Taste great!

    The only time I boil chicken is when i need some broth. And that's only for Thanksgiving.

    I have boiled chicken once in a while because my parents really like soup and they'll toss in a chicken breast for me. Its not THAT bad if its from the soup, theres atleast some flavour from the veggies and w/e else they put in. But I could imagine that boiling it in just water would make it turn out really gross. Just keep on grillin, tastes way better

    You can boil chicken but some people hate it that way. I don't mind it.

    But, instead of just boiling it, why not chop it up, throw it in a crock pot with vegetables, water and herbs and slow cook it. When it's all cooked, thicken it with cornflower or something similar and you've got a great meal that doesn't taste bland.

    What I don't understand is why people think that healthy eating involves taking all the enjoyment out of eating.

    It's minimal. When you boil chicken, the fat should theoretically float to the top of the pot.

    Out of interest how often do you cheat? I am tempted to say you are more likely to cheat if you make yourself eat food that doesn't taste nice.

    I buy about 4-5 chicken breast every week. Throw them in a big pot of water, walk away for about 35 min. It is always juicy, never dry. I let it cool and then shred it. Also, shredding it stretches it a lot further.


    Through the week I throw it into all sort of recipes quickly. Salads, enchilada sauce with black beans, marinara sauce w/veggies, rice. It is so easy and quick. I might be addicted to it.

    Maybe you're not cooking it right...

    My roommate started making this from Tyson Frozen Chicken Tenders. I've tried other brands, and they aren't as good. Maybe it's better when you use frozen chicken tenders. He says the full breasts take too long. He makes it all the time and he taught me how. Here's how to do it:

    Take a pot, put a little olive oil in there, toss in a few tenders, immediately put water in. He usually takes the lid to the pot and fills the lid with water and dumps that in. It's usually just enough to cover the tenders. Put the lid on the pot. Give it a couple of minutes to thaw a bit and then ADD SPICES/SEASONING (pepper, basil, chili flakes--whatever you want) . All the seasoning and water is absorbed again by the chicken.

    He usually breaks it up into smaller pieces while it's cooking by using a metal spoon. From time to time you can comeback and stir the chicken around while it's cooking, continuing to break it up into smaller pieces. It's finished when all, or pretty much all, of the water is gone.

    It's really good. It's easy, and it's great for putting on salads or just eating by itself. As far as if you lose any nutritional value, I can't say. When people boil vegetables, they dump the nutrients with the water. Since there is no water to dump, I would think it would be pretty much the same value.

    Boiling chicken eliminates the need to cook the chicken with oil. If you don't like the chicken being watered down, boil it in chicken broth. That **** is 10 calories a cup so its pretty much water.

    Or make soup...

    Those people you spoke with are incorrect, OP. Chicken is chicken no matter which way you cook it. Fried, baked, sauteed, grilled...

    Coming from a professional chef, you should never boil chicken... You might "poach" it but it takes someone who knows what they are doing to make poached chicken taste good. All of the different cooking techniques is more about texture than flavor.

    really it depends. i think if you throw a chicken breast into a pot of water whole you're going to end up with a rubbery, tasteless piece of chicken. at our restaurant when people asked for steamed chicken and vegetables we actually put our sliced chicken into the water directly and boil it. just a few minutes and it comes out tender and juicy and tasting like chicken.

    poaching is a good idea, although one i want to try when i get my kitchen is Beer cooler sous vide cooking

    Also... When people do boil their chicken I'm assuming they don't marinade it or put anything on it correct? Do they just eat it boiled without any taste or flavor to it?

    Thanks in advance guys!

    Boiling chicken extracts more fat than grilling/roasting. I have experimented by boiling 2kg of chicken and grilling 2 kg of chicken. If you let the broth cool down after removing the the boiled chicken, you would be amazed by the amount of fat/jelly that nearly solidifies in the pan. However, with grilling you get less fat because the chicken locks in the fat within its tissues. I'm a hard gainer so I basically eat grilled chicken which contains more fats/calories to meet my daily demands.

    The only time I've ever boiled chicken is when it was being used in a recipe (for example, chicken enchiladas. I only did this because its how my mother used to do it).

    Now I use store bought roasted chicken (Sams Club has huge ones for cheap) instead of boiling. Quicker and more flavor.

    Boiled chicken = My Pitbull's dinner with his dry food every night lol.

    Joking aside, for flavor you're gonna need to inject brine or marinade into the meat itself if you want flavor from boiled chicken.

    I cook in a Wok most time and I have a non-stick grill pan I use other times...
