4 Super Easy Ways to Cook Chicken

If you enjoy eating a lot of chicken in your diet because it is easy on your budget, then it pays to have many ways to cook it. Chicken is an affordable meat that many people use in their daily meal planning. The problem with chicken is that creating new ways to prepare it could be difficult. Here are four ways to use the chicken thigh with the leg attached to make a tasty meal:

Roast Chicken

Roasted must be the easiest way to cook chicken. Just wash, pat dry, rub with oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper. You can cook with the lid on or off. Many people will cook and take the cover off three-quarters of the way to ensure that the skin gets brown and crisp. Add your one of favorite vegetables, and you have a meal prepared with little hassle.

BBQ Chicken

If you are new to using a BBQ grill, take the skin off the chicken before you start cooking. Removing skin will significantly reduce the chances of a fire starting and burning your meat. Add any style of sauce near the end of cooking. Having 3-4 different sauces will allow you to change the flavor of the meat by using a different sauce. It goes excellently well with steamed rice, veggies and as a side to most dishes.

Breaded Chicken

Breading is a quite fantastic way to cook your chicken. You can purchase different flavors at your local grocery store, or you can mix your own spices and add them to your coating. The best part of making your unique spice blend is that you can control how much sodium you use. Two popular coatings you can use are corn flakes and crackers. If you want to prepare a truly special meal, Japanese Panko bread crumbs will add a nice touch to your chicken.

The Slow Cooker

Another easy way to cook chicken is to add chicken pieces and bones to a slow cooker along with some water. Set it on low, add a couple of bay leaves, some salt, and then leave it to cook all day. An hour before cooking, take the chicken out of the slow cooker and let it cool. While the chicken is cooling, you can add noodles or rice. Pick all the meat off the bones and put it back into the slow cooker and you will have an amazing chicken noodle or rice soup.
