Boil Frozen Chicken In Tomato Sauce For A Flavor Boost
You can cook chicken directly from frozen with no health risk involved, but you will have to extend the overall cooking time by about 50%. Methods like grilling and pan-frying don't work well with this increased time and can dry out chicken, so boiling the chicken in a flavorful liquid like tomato sauce is a much better option.
You need the tomato sauce to submerge your chicken completely, and a 24-ounce jar of sauce will usually cover two chicken thighs or chicken breasts. Boil it until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit, which takes roughly 30 to 35 minutes, then pair the meat and sauce with cooked pasta or rice.
You can dress up this quick and easy chicken with tomato sauce in countless ways. You can give your meal a chicken parmesan-like twist and add a slice of mozzarella cheese to the still-hot chicken, introducing a cheesy, melty element, or toss in some chopped fresh parsley for a touch of herbal freshness.
