we have a competition team and i havent been doing well in chicken
i want to ask your recommendation on making my chicken skin tender and also having a deep dark color? i have tried steam, and then back to the grill but my skin is still tough! help!
Answer:Monte,, thanks for the question. Sometimes it is the age of the bird. Try this: place the seasoned pieces in a pan skinside up. Place a 1/4" pad of butter on the skin side. Every 20 minutes turn the piece over, until it reaches 175-180 degrees internal. Try to cook as fast as possible (1 Hour). You may also brine the pieces before cooking. I baste with bbq sauce. That helps the softness of the skin also. I hope this helps. Paul
