Boiled Chicken question

Hi everyone, I was wondering if someone could help me out with the amount of time I should boil about 8 chicken thighs. I was thinking about an hour, maybe thats too long? Thanks in advance.

Boiling is generally not a very good way to cook chicken. You end up with flavorless dry meat. What are you making with the thighs?

Hi everyone, thanks for the greetings. :) Well what I was planning on doing was spread bbq sauce on the boiled thighs after it was finished to make a kind of bbq chicken thing. I'm really not very familiar with cooking, so any tips could be great. :) Thanks a lot!

Hi, cookin. Welcome to DC.

I'd recommend putting the thighs on a baking sheet and roasting them in a 400F oven until done. Them brush with your sauce and turn on the broiler.

Nice idea, thanks. How do I know when they are finished?

Also, if you had to boil them with this kind of recipe, how long would you boil them for?

Thanks!

Try this....

Spray an oven proof pan...with Pam etc.
Remove skin from thighs...
Salt and Pepper
Pour your favorite BBQ sauce over thighs.
slice a whole onion on top...
cover with tight fitting lid or aluminum foil...
Preheat oven to 350*
cook for 1 solid hour...
Becareful removing lid or foil...lots of steam...will burn you if not careful

Enjoy!

It is very difficult to judge chicken by time. What you should really do is get yourself an instant read thermometer. You can get one for less than $10. Chicken is done at 165. Take it out of the water at about 160 and let it rest, covered while the temp goes up the last 5 degrees.

chicken in a good sized pot at a slow rolling boil will cook in a bout 20 min ... supposing you are not cooking frozen chicken.

Chicken parts on a roasting pan in the oven at 350/375 about 30 minutes. (once again assuming you have thawed chicken.

However, always best to check with a thermometer.
