I love poached chicken, I hardly cook chicken any other way. It keeps it tender and juicy....I hate dry or tough meat. This is a quick and tasty way to make BBQ chicken on the stove.
You will need:
Boneless chicken, it can be breast, tenders or any boneless chicken. Cut into 2 inch wide strips.
Chicken broth or water and bouillon
Large pot and lid
Fill a pot with a little chicken broth or water and bouillon, I cant say exactly how much because it depends on what size you need for however much chicken your making. Put about an inch of liquid, you can always add a little more if needed.
Let the broth come to boil
Put the chicken in the pot, the water should cover the bottom half of the chicken, so the top half is above water
Reduce heat to low and put the lid on an let sit for 7-8 min
Flip the chicken over and put lid back on and let sit for 7-8 more minutes
Remove chicken from broth and put it in a pan, push the chicken to the edges of the pan
Pour BBQ into the pan and over the chicken also, don't be shy dump it all over
Turn the heat on medium and let the sauce heat up but make sure to keep it moving, stir constantly
The sauce will start to bubble a bit, move the chicken to the center of the pan and stir to cover the chicken with the sauce
Continue to stir constantly while keeping the heat on medium for about 3 minutes (if the BBQ sauce you are using is not very thick than you may want to increase it to 5 minutes)
For an quick and easy dinner pair it with some veggies and mashed potatoes.
