Boiling makes chicken, meat and seafood tough and rubbery. It makes the protein seize up.

Cooking in barely simmering water will keep the chicken tender.

Simmering the chicken in water or boiling it really isn't a necessary step to prep it for broiling, baking, grilling or pan cooking it.

While you can get tender chicken by simmering it in water, that's not the only way.

Proper mangement of time and temperature will yield perfectly cooked, tender chicken with any of these cooking methods.

If that's what you like, go for it, by all means. Just make sure you don't check for doneness by sticking your finger into the water.
