Since this recipe calls for chicken breast, it is important not to overcook the chicken as there is a high chance of the meat losing its moisture making it dry or chewy in texture. The trick to mastering chicken breast recipes is to cook to cook it on the lowest heat setting for ten minutes straight with a lid covered on top. This method will slow cook the chicken retaining all the juices and moisture without drying it or ruining the flavor. Resist the urge to open the lid and peek through. After ten minutes, when you open the lid, notice how juicy and tender the chicken breast will taste. If you practice this method, cooking with chicken breast should be a cake walk.It’s important to practice right methods of handling meat for the purpose of safety and hygiene. Any meat including chicken could lead to food poisoning if not handled properly. Always makes sure to cook chicken, pork, and seafood to the right temperature to prevent food contamination. You can stop up to 80 percent of food-borne diseases by handling meat the safe way. Always clean your hands before and after handling meat and also keep your kitchen counter tops sanitized at all times. Remember always to refrigerate or freeze meat for later use to prevent salmonella.
