    Lvs2Cook's Note:

    I always poached chicken when I needed cooked for a recipe -- and I never liked the way it came out. I was watching Ina's show on the Food Network last weekend and this is how she cooks her chicken for recipes. I tried it and it was the most moist chicken I have ever had. I used it in chicken noodle soup -- YUM!!! The recipe can be increased or decreased depending on how much cooked chicken you need. UPDATE 7/31/07 -- I tried this method on boneless, skinless chicken breasts and it worked great -- I baked for about 35 minutes and it was cooked perfectly!

      I would love to be able to give this lots more stars---this is the greatest way to cook chicken to use in any recipe requiring pre-cooked chicken. The chicken stays moist and juicy not dried out! I've even used skinless, boneless chicken breasts and cut the time down to about 25-30 minutes depending on the size! Really great idea!

      Great way to cook chicken to be used later in recipes calling for cooked chicken. This recipe actually served two purposes, one for the chicken to use later in a chicken and noodle dish and the other was to use the drippings that evening to make a gravy to go along with a different recipe where all the drippings would be absorbed in the dressing. Thanks for posting the recipe. Made for I Recommend Tag Game.

      DELISH!!! I was really impressed how great my chicken came out. I used chicken breast, and cooked them at 25 minutes. I chopped them up, and put them on salad. I can't believe how easy and tasty this recipe comes out!!
