View Full Version : Cluck, cluck....
I need to know the best way to cook chicken if I want to puree it. Should I boil, steam,etc...:confused:
hmmmmmmmm.... good question! :)
Maybe poach it? That way it retains a lot of moisture, and stays tender.
I poach it so that it keeps the mouisture in but also when pureeing I add some of the water/stock that the chicken was cooked in. I find that it needs that extra liquid and if you've used chicken with no fat then it's fine.
I also cooked a piece of rump steak and made a little gravy and chopped it up then pureed it with ds vegies, have also done mince but you have to use the lean mince.
hope this helps
thanks ladies, I wasn't quite sure.
I find with pureering any meat, it doesn't matter so much how you cook it but what you blend it with that's important for texture. Since meat is a protein, it's best to blend with a starchy carbohydrate (like rice, potato etc) so that it comes out smooth and not grainy.
