Recipe Tips

  • The cooking time can vary heavily depending on the size of the chicken breast. If the chicken breasts are extra-large, you might need to cook for twenty minutes. On the flip side, if they are small, you might only need to cook for 5 minutes. My chicken was roughly 250g (8.8 oz) per breast.
  • A meat thermometer is the best way to ensure that the chicken is cooked correctly internally. The internal temperature of the chicken should be at least 75°C (170°F).
  • If you are using frozen chicken breasts, you may need to increase the cooking by ten minutes. I highly recommend that you use a meat thermometer to ensure the center of the chicken is cooked.
