Make My Own?

I came across this bag of chicken recently during my grocery shopping and we tried it since it was FREE! Oh my - it is so delicious! But, at $7.50 a bag - I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas on how I can make something like this myself? The main thing is how do they keep it so moist from freezer to oven to dish - it is sooooooooo good! Thanks for any tips!

Are these the chicken breasts that we had on the sandwiches when I was visiting? I will testify that they were indeed very yummy!

I have no idea how they make them so juicy but I will say that I have started buying the frozen bags of chicken tenderloins. They are juicier and more tender then any breasts we have tried. I also find they are more versatile to our cooking. we can make a few or alot. Cook them from fozen and they cook quicker then breasts. Now I find the price reasonable. They are about $6.99 for a 2.5lb bag but that is Military Commissary pricing and I have no idea how much they are in the real world. So they may not be that cost worthy in the long run.

Well...my inlaws own a meat market...so i get all my chicken through there...but i know when i am cooking chicken from the freezer, I put it in a dish with either cream of chicken soup or cream of mushroom soup and cover with foil while it cooks. That definitely keeps it moist and delicious!

Monica, I would try brining the chicken first, and then copy the spice ingredients (at least the healthy ones).

they sell something like this at Trader Joe's that I absolutely love but yeah, pretty pricey. If you find out, let us know!

Before our George Foreman grill died I would take the frozen chicken breast, put the seasoning on the outside and then put it on the grill... frozen. It always came out so moist. I think it was because the outside was sealed before the inside cooked, and that sealed in the juices. One thing we liked to do was to add spicy creole mustard to the outside of the chicken breast, and then cook it. So easy, but so good. I hope this helps you out somewhat.
