Cooking chicken....

When a recipe calls for "cooked cubed chicken" how do you cook it? Do you think there is a difference in taste if you cut it before or after cooking?

Here's my interpretation...

Boil the chicken until cooked through. Then, dice the chicken into "cubes". Sometimes a recipe is going for a certain texture and making something, like, shredded chicken instead of cubed will affect the overall presentation of the meal. But for taste? I don't think it matters much.

My method is to put the oven on broil and use a broiling pan (mine just came with the oven). Use the middle rack. It takes 7-9 minutes per side. Cut them in half to make sure they are cooked through if not give them a few more minutes. Then, viola!

I bake it the long way (375 for 30 min) I have found my chicken is more juicy and tender that way.

I prefer to use a pressure cooker. 4 chicken breasts, 2 cups of water, 15 minutes at a full rock. The chicken comes out so juicy and it's the easiest and cleanest way, by far, that I've found to cook chicken.

Microwave is easy, fast and delicious. Use a glass baking dish with a cover--or waxed paper. About 19 minutes for a whole chicken. For whatever pieces you are cooking figure 7 minutes per pound. Seasoning optional.
Flavor is great because the juices are ubdiluted .
