    Wondering how the daily chicken eaters cook their chicken? I'd like to eat chicken daily but can't imagine cooking it often enough to do that. Maybe you're eating (pre-cooked) chicken lunch meat or something like that?

    I grill up a few pounds at a time then portion it out into a single servings and freeze it. I use it on salads mostly for lunch.

    I don't eat chicken daily, but frequently. I also do eggs, protein powder and whey. But when I cook it, I always start from fresh chicken, not processed. I bake it often with spices, garlic and some olive oil. Sometimes in skillet on stovetop, saute, lemon, spices. I find if I choose it raw I know where it's coming from and what's been added. My entire new start at diet and weight loss depends on cooking. I haven't cooked this much in years-but for me it's the only way I'm going to succeed. And only 50 days into this, it's working. Unless you have a great income and can afford pre-made high quality meals you buy, cooking seems to be a key to success.

    Forgot to add, I always cook more chicken than for one meal so leftovers are in fridge to add to salads, sandwiches, etc.

    The Instant Pot cooks any type of meat really fast. It takes approximately 9 minutes to cook chicken breast (after it heats up). I love it :)

    I season the chicken breasts and put it in my rice cooker. Cook on fast mode and 15,20 min later it's done. Basically steamed. Then cube it up and store in airtight container, use it for salad topper for sides, whatever. I also would grill thighs and keep it handy for whatever when we have the grill going. It's just easy when the cooking is done. Have it ready in the fridge or in freezer.

    I'd like to thank everyone for the chicken cooking ideas. I pulled out my old Instant Pot and put frozen chicken breasts (from Walmart), some chicken broth, and some spices (yes, I spiced the chicken frozen) and set it for 11 minutes, and then let it sit for 10 minutes in the pot after cooking (not dissipating pressure for 10 minutes). The chicken came out tender and pretty delicious (per Google search you should adjust cooking time based on the size of the breast/chicken portions).

    I'm going to keep trying and experimenting with some of the ideas above. Thank you!

    Lately it's fish. Salmon, sole, baramundi, tuna.
    I have these Ahi tuna steaks...so I think tonight I'm gonna do a stir fry (soba, veggies) and a teriyaki tuna steak.
