Airline Chicken

Whenever I am travelling on a plane, I usually prefer eating chicken there. Once I wondered what the difference between the chicken they serve there is. I got to know that chicken doesn’t dry out as much as normal. So I checked for the recipe on the internet and got to know how we can make that kind of chicken at home.

Then add butter, rosemary and thyme. At last pour chicken stock and boil until it reaches the desired thickness. Now the chicken is ready.

This recipe is a bit long recipe but don’t worry I have added the detailed steps in such a way that it would be easy for you to make the chicken. But here are some other amazing recipes that you should definitely try.
