It does look beautiful!

But, if you boil a chicken breast for 25 minutes it will be dry and rubbery. You should never boil chicken.

It needs not to be well cooked but just cooked through. And gently.

Poaching: Try putting a chicken breast in a pot with seasoned liquid to cover and bring it to a gentle simmer. Simmer for one minute. Then turn off the heat and tightly cover the pot. Check it in 20 minutes. Should be done. This will give you juicy and succulent white meat.

Thank you for your suggestion. I will try to prepare chicken breast this way!

I do not like white chicken meat. I go right by it when shopping. My daughter often makes a chicken dish with white chicken meat and broccoli. She never sends me a plate. Fine with me.

But last week, I had two chicken cutlets in the freezer. I don't know why I even bought them. The Pirate came by one day, took them out and poached them 'til just done. He made a chicken salad that even I ate, again, and again. I kept dipping into the bowl. I couldn't leave it alone. The Pirate, knowing how I feel about white meat, was so surprised, he took a heaping amount and put it on a dish for me. I have to buy some more chicken breast meat.

I like to grill chicken (thighs/breast) with the skin on--take the skin off to serve. In the winter, I use my grill pan.
