Before jumping into the Pan Roasted Chicken Breast recipe, let’s have a look at some tips for chicken recipe preparations taken from Gordon Ramsey’s masterclass.

Tips To Tenderise Chicken

Learning how to tenderise the chicken is the key to tender chicken. Tenderising is a technique that evens out the texture of chicken and makes it juicier. 

  • To tenderise chicken, remove any bones that have remained in the chicken. Alternatively, you may use skinless and boneless chicken breasts to avoid this step and save a few minutes on the overall cooking time. We have a great selection of boneless cuts, including breast meat. All Licious chicken is sourced from government-approved biosecure farms and contains no hormones or antibiotic residue. Our expert meat technicians also cut, clean and trim the chicken, so you don’t have to! 
  • Marinating your chicken overnight might help make it juicier and more tender.
  • Chicken Breast Pan Roasted should not be undercooked or overdone, but rather just perfect. Tenderised chicken cooks best at high temperatures ranging from 160℃ to 200℃. Check the internal temperature of the chicken with a meat thermometer while it cooks to prevent scorching it or serving it uncooked. Before removing the meat from the heat source, the interior temperature should be around 71℃.

Use the above-mentioned methods to make your cooking experience more enjoyable, and create a delicious memory this Valentine’s Day that stays forever!
