I'm really funny when it comes to cooking chicken. When a recipe calls for cooked chicken I usually boil it to get the stock. Two things come from this, besides my chicken. #1 I don't like all the 'stuff' that boils out of my chicken so I wash it and even strain the broth before it goes into the refrigerator or freezer. #2 I hate the film that it 'cooks' into my pan. I normally end up filling the pan with hot water and detergent, letting it soak a bit before I scrub. I use stainless steel pans, not non-stick.
Well today I was getting ready to boil some chicken for a new dish I was working on. Just before I filled my pan with water I decided to give it a spray with the non-stick. I use it for everything but wasn't sure it would work when boiling my chicken. What did I have to lose?
It worked! When my chicken was done, removed and my broth poured out I put my pan under the hot water and the scum from cooking the chicken just wiped right off. One of the dreads in boiling chicken was just rinsed away.
