Can you make a chicken breast in the microwave?

  1. Can you make a chicken breast in the microwave?


    I need to start thinking about how I will prepare my food next year in the fraternity house that doesn't have a kitchen!

    I am not sure if the foreman grill is allowed.


  2. yes, but not very appealing


  3. i do it all the time. just add some seasoning to it and its not that bad at all. im not sure what it does to the nutritional content, but its quicker and easier than grilling.

  4. Foreman grill is pretty small, will anyone know? Man I hate microwaved chicken!

    You could always cook under your bed

  5. Yea, at my frat house we weren't allowed to have foremans either but I think there were atleast half a dozen in the house. Just be careful with it and there should be no problem...

  6. Do they ban refridgerators and freezers as well???!!!!


    ahahah I had to ask!!!!!!!

  7. no way!!!!!!!!! unless you like eating rubber.

  8. Can you do a full chicken breast w/ bone on the foreman? if so how long are we talking about

  9. id cook my chicken in the microwave if i wanted to give my jaw and stomach a workout. the best bet is to boil water and cook it in there, so in your case chicken in bowl of water nuke 10 mins or so. This is not ideal, but wont dry out and get rubbery, if you had a car a bbq in the trunk would be sweet.

  10. AHH college! Chicken Breast with a side of ramen noodles w/ peanut butter MMMMM...
    If you use a micro wave be sure that you wash the chicken breast outer surface. The baterium that causes food poisoning is topical, located on the outer surface only. Microwaves cook from the inside - out. So, the chicken may be cooked inside but still have bacteria on the surface. I learned this the hard way.(!) I would recommend any other method of cooking unless you enjoy projectile vomiting... Immersing the chicken in water is a good idea.

  11. During school, I would buy cans of chunk chicken breast from the store. You can add what seasoning you want and toss in the microwave for a minute or two and add microwave veggies for a meal. It would be a bit easier and tastier that microwaving a raw chicken breast. I sure it would be like gnawing on a piece of foam rubber.

    excellent advice. That and tuna are much better than a microwaved chicken breast!!!!!

  13. Cans of chicken breast are actually tastey. Except they are around $3 a can the last time I checked. Tuna seems to be the better option for value reasons.

  14. You can try this recipe it looked awesome on the show. http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/reci..._33151,00.html You can also pick up a microwave steamer/rice cooker for about ten bucks and steam it. If you want to stock up on canned tuna and chicken breast costco has them both for about half the price of the grocery store. worst case buy an extension cord and use your foreman outside.
  15. Talking


    I've been in a similiar predicament all year but I found the solution. The WalMart near me carries PRE-COOKED frozen boneless chicken breasts made by Puritan's Pride. They are in a big teal colored bag and cost around $7 for 8 breasts, each having 20g protein, 3.5g fat, and 3g carbs. I put 2 on a plate, put about 1/4cup water with them, cover them with plastic wrap and nuke them for 7mins on medium. They come out fork-tender, they're relatively cheap, and taste pretty freakin good with some low-carb barbeque sauce. =D

  16. Wow, you guys have frat houses without any type of kitchen? We must of been spoiled. We even had a chef for lunch and dinner.

    And um, microwaved chicken is terrible. I'd find some type of grill (charcoal or something) and just cook a weeks worth of chicken. You can warm it in the microwave if you must.

    I am not so sure this is true... 1/2 cook a chicken breast in the microwave and cut it open, its cooked on the outside and raw in the middle, ie not cooked from the inside out.

    The way they cook is by making the water molecules in the food resonate(ie giving them more energy) this kinetic energy is converted to heat(via friction I guess) and voila, a cooked chicken breast.

    I don't know about making chicken in the Microwave but I do know about cooking chicken in the Microwave. Atleast consider getting a George Foreman Grill or any other ultra-portable cooking device that doesnt take long and will be easy to clean later.

  19. yeah tuna can be a better choice. They have that whole mercury and heavy metal toxic thing, but I still eat a lot of it. Mustard and some hot sauce go a long way in making it taste better!

  20. if you can find one of those microwave dishes with a steam lid, it will taste better and be alot more moist than just putting in there on a plate, Maybe like walmart?
