Steam-Grilled BBQ Chicken Breasts – Best receipe ever!

Do you like grilled chicken breasts, but they always come out dry?

Well, today I am going to show you a different way to cook a tasty, healthy, tender bbq chicken breasts.

I got my hands on the new Tatung Fusion Cooker and this recipe was a huge hit. Even my 3-year-old liked it.

Ingredients:

2 Chicken Breasts

1 cup BBQ Sause

salt and black pepper

Preparation:

1. Cut each chicken breast into 3 strips.

2. Put the 6 chicken breast strips into a dish and add the BBQ sauce. I am using the Trader Joe’s Kentucky Bourbon BBQ Sauce, but you can use other. I like this one, because it gives the chicken this sweet, but spicy smoked bbq flavor. If one cup is not enough, add more.

3. Let the chicken marinate in the BBQ sauce for at least an hour in the fridge. If you have time, leave it for up to 3hrs.

To cook the chicken breasts, I am using the new Tatung Fusion Cooker. It stem-grill the chicken and ensures all the flavor and moisture stays inside the meat. No more dry chicken breasts here 🙂

4. Put water on the heating water column, then select Grilling mode at 340F.

5. Once the water starts to boil, pit 3 of the chicken strips on the grilling pan. Put the metal lid on so the steam stays inside.

6. Grill for 6min, then turn and grill for another 5min.

7. Serve while still hot.

8. Enjoy 🙂

How to prepare:

In a mixing bowl beat eggs and pepper until blended. Crumble the feta cheese and add to the eggs.

Cook the same way you would do scrambled eggs – 5 to 10 minutes over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat when the eggs are almost done. Let them cool down.

To prepare the peppers cut the top off with a paring knife and scoop out the seeds and veins.

Using a small spoon (or your fingers) and fill each pepper with the egg and feta cheese cheese mixture.

Heat another large skillet over medium-high and add 1/4 cup of oil. When the oil is hot enough, place the filled peppers in the skillet.
