Nope - didn't work. I followed the directions exactly. I used a 6 qt stock pot and 4 leg quarters, which I thought would be equivalent to what you said you usually do. The in and out stuff seemed silly, but I did it anyway. The chicken was simply not cooked. It is in the oven now.
Thanks for posting.
This worked perfectly. I had really big chickens so I had them sit in the water for two hours and they came out perfect.
This worked out well for me! I usually cook my chicken in chicken broth in the crock pot all day...but I didn't get it started in time and needed a quicker method. I used 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts and the chicken turned out perfect for our Chicken Pot Pie supper! Thanks!
This gave me really moist chicken. I did it slightly different tho. I put the chicken in the pan and added onions, 1/2 a lime and chicken bullion powder. Brought to a boil and let it go for about 10-15 minutes. Turned it off, left the chicken in the water for an hour and turned the stove back on, brought to a boil, let it go for another 10 minutes...turned it off. It sat for a couple of hours while I ran in errand. When it cooled enough to de-bone, it was so moist and flavorful. And I got great tasting chicken stock. :-) Thanks for the idea.
Wonderful technique which yields very moist meat. My grocery often has chicken on sale. Now I have a very economical way to prepare it for recipes calling for cooked chicken. Thanks That Bobbie Girl.
I cooked some boneless chicken breasts for a casserole that I was making today. The chicken turned very moist. I usually cook it in the microwave but I will be using this method from now on. Thanks
Even after 50 reviews, I was still skeptical about this method of cooking chicken. I was so very wrong!! Oh my gosh, it is wonderful. I've had weight-loss surgery (RNY) so getting in enough protein is very important, yet any meat has to be moist. This fits the bill perfectly - I whipped it up in some chicken salad last night, dh and dd had it with BBQ sauce and today it's going to be soup! Thank you!
This is the way to cook chicken for a casserole. It worked like a charm. I used 3 partially frozen chicken breasts and let them cook for an hour and they came out moist and delicious.
This was amazing! Made it for Ritz and Chicken Casserole that called for 2 to 3 cooked and cubed chicken breast. Used 2 large B/S chicken breast and otherwise followed directions as written and made it on a gas stove. I was skeptical but this worked like a charm!
