Learn how to meal prep chicken with the easiest way to cook chicken. My technique takes less than 5 minutes of active preparation time and is an easy way to prepare large batches of chicken in advance. I recommend making a batch on Sunday so that you are ahead of the game going into the week.
The secret to making the most tender juicy chicken is to cook it low and slow with some white wine. First I place boneless skinless chicken breasts on a baking pan with a rim. Then I drizzle olive oil over and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pour enough white wine into the bottom of the pan so that it is 1/2 inch deep. Bake the chicken for 45 minutes at 300 degrees, flipping the chicken over after 20 minutes. If you don’t want to use white wine, you could use chicken broth instead. You can use this technique for baking just one chicken breast or pounds of chicken at a time.
I learned this method for roasting chicken breasts when I was working at a catering company during college. I have been making chicken this way ever since. The chicken always turns out perfectly tender and evenly cooked, and you can make large batches of chicken in just minutes of active preparation time. The white wine makes the chicken super tender, the chicken slowly poaches in the wine making it super tender.
I have recently gotten into meal prepping. It truly saves me time to have some meals ready to go in the fridge. We eat a lot of chicken breast around here since it is a great source of lean protein, so I have been preparing a pound or two of roast chicken breasts about once a week. Then I can easily add that chicken to salads, sandwiches, or pastas. Having meal prepped chicken is like having a secret weapon in your fridge.
