Chicken fillet baked in a slow cooker

Chicken fillet baked in a slow cooker

When choosing meat for cooking this or that dish, the experienced hostess already knows in advance what it will be. This is especially true for chicken, whose meat with different methods of heat treatment can be both juicy and soft, and dryish.

If in boiled form any part of the chicken carcass is always possible, then for roasting it is better to take hips or shins, because the white breast fillet in the oven dries out a lot.

But if you have a slow cooker, then chicken fillet can be cooked in it. Even in the simplest model there is a “Baking” function. Having established this mode, it is possible not only to bake a pie, but also to bake meat.

During roasting inside the bowl, conditions are created under which even such “capricious” meat as breast fillets is well baked, while remaining juicy. This effect is achieved due to the abundance of steam in the bowl and the accumulation of condensate on the inside of the lid.

Before baking, the fillets can be marinated using your favorite spices, seasonings and sauces.

Chicken meat is cooked quickly, especially the breast, so it does not require long marinating. 30 minutes is enough for the fillet to soak in the aroma of seasonings.

Fillets can be baked without additional ingredients or use juicy vegetables: onions, tomatoes, eggplants.

If you put slices of cheese on the meat, it will be covered with a melted crust and get a piquant taste.

Many housewives bake fillets in foil. This method is fully justified, since it is possible to cook meat in portions. At the same time, meat and vegetable juice remain in the foil, making the meat even juicier and softer.

But before using the foil, remember that it can spoil the coating of the bowl - not for nothing that they advise you not to use metal appliances. Therefore, some housewives for baking products in foil get a second bowl. And others - before putting meat wrapped in foil (or something else) in a bowl, put a sheet of parchment in it. If you still decide to use foil, try to make the packaging turned out without sharp corners that could scratch the bowl.

Cooking time of chicken fillet depends on the power of your multicooker. If its power is high, then the dish can be removed from the bowl after 30 minutes. In case of weak work of the multicooker, the duration of baking is increased by another 20-30 minutes.
