WHen I halve a recipe I usually use about 3/4 of the liquid stated and that keeps every thing moist. Most of the time now I don`t bother to halve the recipe, but freeze the excess for another day.

Just do the next right Thing.

I always add the chicken broth when I use chicken breasts. They stay moist that way. The dark meats don't seem to need it as much, but the breasts definitely do!

I forgot something else-though people don't advise it, it is the only way I do it and I have not had a problem. I start with them frozen--so I guess cuts cooking time.....

I buy marinated chicken breasts, and slice them in half very thin. I find that broiling them really keeps them moist and tender. I use a meat thermameter to check internal temperature. Being thin, it doesn't take long at all to broil. Serve this with a nice salad, veggie if you like, and a glass of milk, and you have a meal. I know the salad would have veggies, but sometimes I really find it hard to get three servings a day.

I do cut my cooking time by a little...if it is 4 hours on high, I give it 3 1/2 (cause I can't stand dried out meats!), 8 hours on low and I go for about 7...but that is ONLY if I have completely cut the recipe in half.

I cook for just my daughter and I as my Husband travels during the week. I always end up just cooking 3 breasts instead of 6 or I even use breast for whole chicken recipes. I think with mine I add so much liquid that don't dry out. I always add wine or soup or both. I find they come out very tender and still keep cooking time as directions...........I am not sure but the liquid really helps even broth or terriyaki......

Not sure if this helps, will be interested in what other people's suggestions are.

When you half a recipe, especially boneless chicken breasts, do you cut the cooking time? My husband says mine has been coming out dry.

Either you control your attitude or it controls you.
