12 Different Ways To Cook Chicken
By EMILY ALEXANDER
12. Roasted Chicken
One of the ultimate comfort foods is roasted chicken, and everyone has their own unique way of making it. For pretty much any way of cooking, seasoning chicken is essential, but roasted chicken is frequently defined by the spices and aromatics, such as rosemary, lemon, and garlic, or a simple blend of paprika, garlic, salt, and pepper.
11. Braised Chicken
Braising uses two cooking methods: first searing the meat to bring out its flavor, then cooking it in wine or broth at a low temperature on a stove or in an oven. Many traditional braised chicken recipes call for ingredients like wine, onion, and lemon, which the chicken will absorb to enhance the flavor of your meal.
10. Poached Chicken
Poaching a chicken is a straightforward method that involves boiling the meat in liquid, but it's easy to over or undercook the meat. Given that the chicken will cook quickly after boiling, there are several important factors to consider, including the proportion of water to meat, seasoning the liquid, and using cold liquid when you start.
9. Fried Chicken
Nothing compares to fried chicken. After putting the meat in a dry brine and refrigerating it for anywhere from 30 minutes to overnight, coat the meat in a spice-heavy mixture and heat the oil to the proper temperature (between 325 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit) before adding the chicken.
8. Grilled Chicken
Grilling chicken results in a nice caramelized crust and is a flexible cooking technique that can be used with any flavor. The flavor can be changed based on the sauce or marinade used, and depending on the cut of meat you're working with, you can skewer portions of thigh meat or throw a full breast on the grill.
