Helpful Tips to avoid Watery Chicken
Many chickens in the supermarkets come with added liquids. That means that when baking this type of chicken breast in the oven, you may not get a nice crust on top, instead your chicken will be swimming in the pool of its own juices + whatever was injected into it.
If you notice that chicken is releasing a lot of water, which might happen if chicken has added liquid, remove it from the oven and transfer it to the stove top pan. Cook until the chicken develops a nice brown crust and good to go!
Alternatively, you can opt to buy air-chilled chicken that has zero injected liquids.
