Non-Stick Spray


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.
