Ok, I don’t know how many of you already know this tidbit, but I just found out about it and thus, need to share with you.
I bake chicken as they don’t allow grills in apartments (and those electric grills are NOT the same as a traditional grill, I don’t care what you say.) Anyway, I used to put the raw chicken on a sheets pan (with or without aluminum foil) and bake them in their own grease and fat. I accepted that this was the way you bake chicken…until my mom said, “Try getting a rack for one of your baking tins or roasting pan!”
What a great idea! Not only do I feel like they cook more evenly, but the fat and grease drippings are at the bottom of the pan while the chicken is raised up on the rack! I feel healthier eating it this way too!
