If you are ever cooking chicken to be included in another recipe (chicken salad, chicken fried rice, whatever) consider boiling it. It’s a simple way to cook it. It’s virtually impossible to over cook. And, if you throw the chicken (skin and all) into a stock pot, fill it most of the way with water, and add a few spices, you not only end up with flavorful chicken for your recipe but you end up with a potful of chicken stock that can be frozen for future use.

    Nice Tip!

    I tend to marinate the chicken in a mix of curd, turmeric, ginger and garlic paste…that makes the chicken flavorful too!

    Oh thanks!! I’m so bad in the kitchen, I seriously don’t even know how to make chicken soup. ::blushing:: And when I read the first line, I read “chicken” as “children”!! :O

    Hahaha Soo.See thinks you’re cooking children!

    We do this a lot – because it even works well when your lack of planning catches up with you and all you have is frozen chicken!

    I usually use the crock pot but then I’m usually just doing a chicken breast or two. It’s sort of goofy for me to buy the whole chicken when I will only eat the breast. This is a good idea though if your cooking for a family.

    Yup, I do that! I roasted a chicken last weekend and will be boiling the carcass to get the rest of the chicken off the bones and have a nice stock for chicken & noodles. Yum.

    I almost always cook my chicken this way!
