Bone-in, Skin-on breasts? Or boneless?

BTW, I visited Trader Joes and by golly they have kosher bone-in not overly huge chicken breasts, 2 to a package. Most of the skin is removed which I now prefer. Skin on is good for bbq, not so good for casserole dish type recipes. Bones add to the meat flavor tho, IMO.

the official term for long braised chicken skin is "ooky".

What? Frozen chicken! It has been cold at night, be we are not frozen!

Love,
Myrtle

PS - Welcome to DC. But I don't want to go to freezer camp. I don't think I'd make a good freezer camper--I'm four and that's too old to go to camp. I'd rather be a virtual therapy chicken. Where's my purple flight suit? Has anyone seen it?

If they are boneless, skinless breasts, I would brine them for a few hours, as they tend to dry out easily.

If the chicken has been frozen, and you thawed it in the refrigerator, why would it have to be cooked that very day? It should be fine in the refrigerator for at least 3 days.

That said, I prefer to brine chicken breasts before I do anything with them. It makes for a moister chicken dish.

Chinese dishes such as kung pao chicken, orange chicken, and Mongolian chicken lend themselves to simple marinades and short marinating times, usually from 30 to 60 minutes.

Calm down Myrtle. No one is going to send you to Freezer Camp. You are safe. Big Chicken would never let you leave her side. She loves you, just like the rest of us, too much to have you go anywhere without her.

Love Addie
