Serving Moist Chicken: Success Tips:

Do not overcook the chicken. Chicken breast is done when it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Use a meat thermometer. Generally a good rule of thumb for cooking most skinless, boneless breasts of chicken is to bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Bake the chicken breast in a sauce to add more flavor and moisture. Ideas include broth, white sauce, or wine sauce. Tomato sauce works well, too.

Once the chicken is cooked, allow it to set for 5 minutes and then slice and serve. If you are serving family style it is always better to serve it over top of a warm sauce.

Refrigerate any leftover chicken immediately. This is important for food safety and quality. You can shred leftover chicken the next day for use in burritos, pasta, or salads.
