To parboil chicken, bring water to a boil. Then turn the water to a low simmer before adding the chicken. When the meat is partially cooked, remove it from the water.
Seasoning the chicken with salt and garlic powder gives it a flavor that works well in most chicken dishes. The seasonings can also be added to the water before the chicken is put into the pot. Parboiling is an ideal method for preparing chicken to be baked or fried. This method of partially boiling the chicken ensures that the meat is thoroughly cooked once it has been deep-fried or baked in the oven.
