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!
