How do you cook chicken breast without rubbery?
Since lack of moisture can cause dry, rubbery chicken, the best way to prevent it is to give it some more by soaking it in heavily salted water before cooking. This process helps to break down some of the muscle fibers of the meat and tenderize them.
How do you keep chicken from drying out on the stove?
Add a small amount of olive oil to a large skillet or brush the chicken breast with butter. The hot pan and the fat will help prevent the meat from sticking to the pan. Depending on the size of your pan, add one or two pieces of chicken. Place chicken breasts in a single layer in the pan.
