I'm stopping at the store tonight to pick up a package of chicken (thighs or breasts, whatever's on sale. Just one small package of 4 pieces) and I'm planning on BOILING them so I can shred them and use for quesadillas, salads, pizza, etc during the week.
Question: How long do I need to boil chicken thighs or breasts for to make sure they're cooked all the way through?
I wasted 3 pieces of chicken this past week trying to like, saute them, so I'm going for something simple my lame brain can handle.
Do you ever get paranoid when cooking your own chicken?
Are you a good cook? If so, how did you become a good cook? Did someone teach you? Teach yourself? Just a natural? (I'm trying to teach myself and I'm frustrated at how awful I am, because it just seems so SIMPLE but I mess something up every time!)
