Expert Tips

Bacteria from raw chicken can transfer to a marinade, so the marinade should always be discarded or heated to boiling if it is to be served with the chicken.

To broil chicken, line broiler pan with foil; spray rack with nonstick cooking spray. Place chicken on sprayed rack; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide, turning once.
