is it okay to boil chicken ?
i've already done this about 5 times .
its fresh boneless chicken
i boil the water & just add the chicken &
let it boil in there for about 10 minutes ..
then i cut it up to bite sized peices & stick
in a roasting pan & put my sauce on it then
i cook it for about 30 to 40 minutes ..
- i just read something saying boiling chicken is bad ..
i've done this before tho ? & it's tasted great everytime
no one in my family has gotten sick ??
& the reason i do this is cuz i heard if you unthaw
chicken in the microwave it gets rid of all the good
stuff in chicken like protein or something ...
what or how bad is it to eat chicken if you boil to unthaw it ??

This recipe "boils" the chicken, just not in water.
Lazy Gourmet Chicken
1 tbls sugar
¼ cup vinegar
½ cup soy sauce
4 garlic cloves, minced
¾ tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 ½ - 3 # fryer, cut up or 2-3 pounds legs/thighs/breasts
Combine all ingredients except chicken in a large, tightly lidded saucepan and bring to a boil. Add chicken pieces and coat each well. Keep covered and reduce heat, simmer 35-40 minutes, basting several times along the way.

It is a good quick way to cook chicken for sandwiches and salad etc, and yields a lot of good stock to save buying broth.. You don't actually boil the chicken, but bring it to the boil then simmer until it is cooked. It seems you could learn a lesson or two from Mum.

Boiling Chicken, like boiling Ribs, removes most of the flavor.
If you must drown it in sauce so be it. Then again why not just use Tofu.
Cook it properly and get the true flavor of the meat.

it is totally ok to boil chicken.this helps u to get fresh fatless chicken.it is totally wrong that boiling chicken is bad.but it is more healthier to boil the chicken for at least 30 mins.later take it into grill machines and grill it up so that it is totally garanteedly cooked and u r tensionfree.it would be good not to add sauce in it as it increases the fat

I think it is okay to boil chicken. There is nothing wrong with boiling chicken. Even at our country, sick people eat boiled chicken because boiled chicken is easy to be chewed and contains more nutrition. don't worry about that.

No, boiled chicken is not bad. It's not my first (second, or thrid) favorite way to prepare it, but it's certainly an option. All I can say is, PLEASE save that wonderful water in which you boiled your chicken. That is liquid gold! Freeze it and use it as a base for soups or sauces.

No problem with pre-boiling and baking the chicken. We do it all of the time at our house and it comes out great.

It's ok to boil chicken...If it's skinless, boneless chicken I sometimes add some margarine to it so it has some fat/flavor.

not to be harsh ,but if your boiling a skinless,boneless bird ! you must really like spending money on cardboard. i mean all the flavor is really in the missing parts and all your really left with are empty calories.. any way it's good to know that your actually re-constituting flavor with your sauce ,that's where i'd worry about harmful issue's .i dont see any danger in your poor bird.Source(s): my kit
