Recipe notes and tips

  • Milk: Use any milk of choice. 2% works well. You may use Dairy-free milk but the consistency will be a little different.
  • Chicken: use free-range organic chicken if possible. Slicing the chicken to a thinner consistency will entire that the chicken cooks through. You may also use boneless chicken thighs.
  • Broccoli: if you don’t like broccoli you may use another vegetable of choice. Try green beans.
  • Broth: we used chicken broth but you may use veggie broth.
  • Do not overcook the chicken so they don’t dry out.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container and place in the fridge for up to 3 days.

frequently asked questions

How do you make chicken really tender?

Pounding the chicken and fattening it is a good way to get the chicken to be more tender once cooked. Be sure you don’t cook the chicken too fast to prevent it from drying out. Cook under low-medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side for perfectly tender and juicy chicken.

What can you season chicken with?

Depends on what you are making, chicken is very versatile that taste great with any seasoning. You can simply use salt and pepper for the base, and then mix in other seasonings like Italian seasoning, thyme, paprika, onion powder, and/or c=garlic powder.

Is it better to cook chicken breast whole or sliced?

We believe it all comes down to the thickness of the chicken and whether you are baking or pan searing. If the chicken breast is too thick we prefer that you slice the chicken lengthwise to make it thinner.
