Chef's Tip

Chicken breast is very lean and dries out easily. Keep the chicken moist by not overcooking it. To know if the chicken is cooked, check the color and firmness. Cooked chicken is white opaque and firm to the touch. Also try poking it with the tip of a small knife. The juices should run clear.
