How keep Chicken Juicy and Tender

No matter which protein you prefer, I strongly encourage you to tenderize your meat. Not only does it make it extra buttery soft, it also helps the delicious sweet and spicy sauce really get deep into the meat for a more flavorful dish.

THIS is the cutting-style meat tenderizer that I use and recommend. It really makes a world of difference in the tenderness of meat, especially leaner proteins and pasture raised chicken.

You simply press the tenderizer down on top of your meat and a bunch a teeny tiny knives puncture the meat without compressing or flattening it at all.

Sharp, durable blades create pockets to reduce marinating and cooking time, allowing meat to retain its natural juices and promoting uniform cooking, without flattening your meat like a traditional hammer-style tenderizer!

I also suggest that you are using a durable plastic cutting board when using a tenderizer instead of a wooden cutting board.

And for the safest cleaning, I give my cutting board a scrub with soap and water, then after rinsing I always spray it with peroxide to make sure that all the poultry germs are totally gone! For more info read this –> How to Clean with Hydrogen Peroxide
