How long does it take to cook chicken fillet until tender

Chicken fillet is an integral part of many dishes. Many do not like chicken fillet due to the fact that it turns out dry. But here it is not the fillet that is to blame, but the one who cooks it.

The fillet contains very little connective tissue. Therefore, the fillet is cooked quite quickly. Another nuance is that the fillet contains very little fat and prolonged cooking will cause the fillet to become tough. Often the recipe states that the fillet must first be boiled until tender.

In order for the fillet to turn out juicy, it is necessary to take into account some tips when cooking it:

- In order for the fillet to turn out juicy, dip it only in hot water.

- If the fillet is cooked for soup and the broth is important, then the fillet is laid out in cold water.

- Don't overcook the fillet. From prolonged cooking, the fillet becomes tough.

- Cook the fillets on low heat, or after boiling, immediately remove and wrap the pan with a thick terry towel. After 20 minutes, the fillet will be ready.

- Boil the fillet in a small amount of water.

- Check the readiness of the fillet with a knife. Pierce the meat with a knife. If the fillet pierces easily, it is ready.
