I don't know if it's a coincidence or not, but I start thinking about my puppy's health and she got sick. I mean vomiting and diarrhea . . . all night! The vet didn't find anything suspicious on examination, and put little Lola on a "bland" diet of chicken and rice. Honestly, I'm afraid she's going to get accustomed to the good stuff and won't eat dog food anymore!
So I needed to cook chicken . . . and why not check Pinterest for the answers? I found the following post discussing the differences between boiling and poaching.
I have to admit, the poaching method did come out with much juicier chicken. I've boiled chicken breasts before for salads, and the meat seems to dry out terribly. For Lola I just poached in water - no fluff or flavor. Maybe bland chicken won't be too tempting.
Scratch that. She just finished her bowl and is snooping for more. Sigh. She's hooked.
