Best way to cook frozen Chicken Breast
Chicken breasts are the most loved parts of meat. People of different origins love to cook it in ways that suit their taste, though there is a slight difference in the ways that we cook our regular chicken to how we cook frozen chicken. Frozen chicken is loved in every way possible, the meat is easy to store, retains all the juices in it, and hence can be said is as nutritional as the fresh chicken. The difference though is how we treat the chicken so that it retains maximum flavors, so here are a few ways in which we can cook frozen breast chicken.
One of the best ways to cook frozen chicken breast is by roasting the chicken breast in the oven. Oven roasting is the most supreme and the most effective way of cooking frozen chicken breast. The only mode of failure that might generate while we roast the frozen chicken breast is the lack of luster on the naked top flesh of the chicken breast, but the same can be eliminated or reduced by using these tasty solutions.
– Cover this frozen chicken breast with some olive oil before putting it in the oven to roast
– Make sure that you lay the slices of the chicken evenly and spaced appropriately so that all the slices are equally cooked.
– Make sure that the chicken breast is appropriately cooked, this means that the internal temperature of the chicken breast should be 165F.
Another way of making sure that your frozen chicken breast comes out delicious of your oven is by preheating the oven. Preheat the oven up to a temperature of 350F before placing the seasoned chicken breast inside it. Once inside 4 to 8 ounces of the piece should be cooked for 60 – 75 minutes.
3- Cooking on the stovetop
Frozen chicken also does cook fairly well on a stovetop. The way of cooking frozen chicken on the stovetop though is slightly different from cooking it in the oven. Saute your chicken breast well before you place it on the stovetop. The downside though is that the longer cooking time on the stovetop makes it easy to char the outside of the chicken breast while it cooks perfectly on the inside. To overcome this, it is recommended that the chicken is simmered in pan sauce, jarred sauce, or broth. If you use a moist sauce while you cook, the resultant will be juicer chicken.
4- Air Fryer
The air fryer acts as a mini convection oven, therefore is you are planning to cook your frozen chicken breast in the fryer make sure that you pre-heat the air fryer before placing the frozen chicken inside.
These as a few ways in which you can cook your frozen chicken breast and be certain that it tastes well too. The overall effect of cooking should be that the internal temperature of the chicken breast is 165F.
