Start with a bone in skin on breast and remove them before serving.

Bake the bone in skin on breast in the oven 350 for 45-50 minutes. Eat skin. Strip chicken from bone without burning your fingers and slice. Simmer chicken slices in gravy or spaghetti sauce, etc., for something different.

I immediately thought of broiling or grilling chicken, bone in, skin on until charred to perfection...THEN proceed from there to make your braising liquid, you would then have that flavor.

Just a thought!

I think that I will just cook the chicken by frying, broiling, or grilling, and jsut make sure to cook it to the proper temp. That way, i'll still get the flavor, and the tenderness. I might try bring the bird first to make it extra juicy and add a bit of flavor to the chicken meat.

Brine recipes anyone? I'm thinking a brine made with chicken soup base, and allowed to chill in the fridge. Place the chicken in, and let it sit in the fridge overnight. That way, the intensified chicken flavor would penetrate the meat. I might add garlic and onion to the brine as well.

Me, I like the herb and spice suggestions that have been given. DW probably wouldn't. Things may get better when she gets her new teeth (dentures). I'm glad mine are the originals that came with this body, still intact and with no cavities, after 55 years of abuse.

chicken breast, recipe

ISO exceptional flavor Last night, I used a method I've known about for many years, but haven't tried before to cook boneless chicken breast. I seared the chicken until it was very lightly browned on both sides in a hot CI skillet that had just a sheen of oil on it. I salted the chicken before cooking. I then added 1/2 cup of well-flavored turkey broth to the pan and covered it. I cooked the chicken for ten minutes more over medium heat. The chicken was done perfectly. It was very juicy and very tender. But it was also pretty bland. I need an exceptional rub or brine that has no thyme, pepper, or sage in it as my DW doesn't like those flavors. This chicken can't be acidic (sour) for the same reason. I could just make a sweet & sour sauce to go over it, or add a bit of soy sauce and cornstarch to the broth. But what I'm really looking for is outstanding chicken flavor, like what you get from properly browning the meat over fire, or in hot grease, or under the broiler, but using the same cooking method as described above. I'm looking for perfect tenderness, with perfect chicken flavor. From most others, the chicken I had prepared would have made them say wow. But I'm trying to please the pallate of people who know the difference between good and great food. I'm not sure I can meet my own expectations. I may be setting the bar a little too high. If I could add the forbidden herbs, and spices, this would be easy. Oh, and curry is out too. It's so hard to cook for someone who doesn't like, or rather, can't eat so many things. Heavy, heavy sigh. Seeeeeeya; Goodweed of the North 3 stars 1 reviews
