Steaming marinated chicken breasts
« on: July 11, 2011, 01:18:33 pm »
Hi Everyone :)

Just a quick question...in the recipe books, it says that you should rinse your chicken and dry with paper towel (I'm sure I read that somewhere!) before you put it in the varoma.  If you marinate your chicken first (or cheat and buy it from lenards already like that hehehe)...do you still need to rinse all that juicy flavour off??  Sorry if that's a dumb question.

Cheers,

Renae  :)

hi renae.  most recipes say to wipe the chicken breasts first. This is to remove any excess moisture that might be there as it might intefere with the flavour.  Chicken breasts kept in a plastic bag build up moisture really fast.

Marinated chicken is fine to be left as is.  The wiping process would have been done if needed before the marinating. Hope this helps.  Ive worked in delis and butcher shops and this is the normal process.  Hope this helps.
