                                      Every time I watch one of these "Chefs Answer" videos, I end up feeling worse. I'm the kind of person who would ask all of these dumb questions that they hate so much. I can't cook by "feel". I need instructions.

People associate washing with cleanliness, but bacteria is ingrained into the skin and meat of the raw chicken. All you're doing when washing is spreading that bacteria around your sink and splashing it into the air. *The heat will kill the bacteria*

                                                                    • HaveFunStayStylish

I usually put the timer at :30 seconds and it's somewhat moist. It obviously it's not the best when you reheat but it taste fine for leftover chicken breast.

                                                                                          I like to skin chickens and plop them whole in the slow cooker. I don't have to worry about them being under-cooked (I've gotten food poisoning from chicken in restaurants three or four times, and am nervous about chicken). I also love skinning them and then coating them with Greek yogurt and hot spices and broiling until the yogurt's black on top. As for reheating chicken breast -- just shred it and stir-fry it or heat it in marinara. Or even purposefully overcook the very small shredded bits until crispy.

                                                                                              1. Always wash your corned beef briskets before cooking or it'll be way too salty.

                                                                                              2. Reheat chicken or other roasted foods using a turbo convection oven at 200 - 225F, with a light drizzle of good-tasting oil to prevent over-drying. If you have an unglazed stoneware platter or surface to cook on, that will work better than a sheet pan. You can't prevent *some* drying out, but esp. if you leave the skin on, and have a well-calibrated oven, you can mitigate the amount it dries out.
