I make my chicken breast in the oven and quite frankly, it sucks!

The chicken is very dry.
I was wondering if cooking chicken breast on a Foreman Grill or something would make it more tender/juicer.

I need help/advice/tips/etc!

Cover in bacon, cook, eat the bacon, discard the chicken.

x2. I cook frozen chicken breasts on the Foreman and they always come out tender and perfectly cooked.

If you can find it (and afford it), get one with removable grill plates. Makes clean up SO much easier.

The best chicken I've had in a while was 3 days ago.

Take a large chicken breast and butterfly it. Then put ~2-3 strips of bacon in the breast. Cover the breast and inside of the breast with a marinade and spices of choice. Then place on the smoker for about an hour (this depends largely on if you're smoking - or just grilling - and the temperature of the inside of your smoker/grill).

Juicy. Delicious.

season it up real well! Get a cast iron pan! Sear it on both sides, and into the oven 400 for 15 minutes. Longer if its a thick breast

Thanks! Didn't know this...will most likely save up to buy that one.

Sounds so delish! Definitely gonna give that a go when I get the griller!

Meh, I just buy bags of frozen chicken tenderloins at the grocery store. Dump the whole bag in a pot with water and boil it for like 45 minutes or so.

They're juicy (or watery? :p), and I just throw em in a ziploc bag in the fridge and eat em whenever.

I used to do them on the foreman grill, but the one I have can only fit like 3 breasts on it, and each bag has 10-15 of em. I'm too lazy to do multiple batches of chicken. :p

Dry you say? Wrap it in foil (do it right and your juices wont drip out making a mess). Season with anything you like.





Also, the bacon thing like wonderpug said.

Personally I marinate it in Chakas Mmmmm sauce, then BBQ.

drop the tenderloins into a container containing a salty water solution and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Grill like you normally would, or if using oven preheat at 450 degrees and place tenderloins onto an aluminum foil surfaced pan...cook for 20-30 minutes depending on how much chicken your cooking, use the higher end for any more than 16 ounces.

To preserve the "juiciness" , add seasonings and whatever flavorings after chicken has cooled add brown rice, lettuce, or other fibrous vegetables, and wash it down with OG or grape juice for a tasty nutritious dinner.

just don't overcook it.

if you're gonna bake chicken put foil over it to trap in the moisture.

i like my breasts bbq'd or fried.

I usually put about 4 to 6 in gallon sized ziplock bags in marinade (store bought pre-made marinades) in the morning and after work I put them in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30-40min.

Another way to make them is to thaw them and slice a little into one and stuff it with feta or blue cheese and place some crushed garlic on it. Or just cube it and throw it into skillet with some olive oil and a little dash/pepper.

Get a chicken breast, put a slice in the side ( like a pocket ) fill with cream cheese or cottage cheese, close the breast then, wrap in bacon, cook and when done, smother in BBQ sauce, cut it in half and see te juiciness of melted cheese ooze out( nom nom nom ) eat and you will enjoy.

Cut it in strips then stir fry it with olive oil, onions and garlic. When it's almost done, put a teaspoon of soy sauce and stir fry a little more. You can eat it just like that or with rice or pita bread. Best when hot.

Or you could skip the soy sauce and use ragu/prego pasta sauce instead. Let it simmer a bit and then put on top of pasta.

If it's dry then you're overcooking it.

I usually cut a pocket in the breast and fill it with mascarpone. Then wrap the chicken breast in prosciutto (parma ham) or streaky bacon. Flash fry it on each side which will make the prosciutto lovely and crispy, then pop it in the over for 20 minutes.

I always grill my chicken in the oven, never dry. 15mins then flip and another 10-15mins depending on how close to the top and the size of the breasts. Good marinade + peanut butter for sauce = delicious :D

What I normally do is that I preheat my oven and then grill each side for 7 minutes (read that on a website once). To make it taste nicer I always put some garlic mince on top, and normally garnish it with lemon pepper and sometimes salt.
