    chicken prep

    Curious as to the advantages of grilling versus roasting chicken...any major differences in the preperation that would make one better than the other nutritionally?....not familiar with the exact roasting process so clueless in that area...especially considering I'm newly addicted to Popeyes roasted chicken...Tastes too good to be good for me...input?

    Roasting is my fav...easy as pie.

    Set the oven at 475 and toss a clean bird on a roaster pan and chuck he's ass in the oven.....after fifteen minutes turn the oven down to 375 and let it cook for an hour or little longer depending on the weight of the bird. The reason for the high temp to begin with is to give the bird a nice brown coat. You can shove a few spices in the cavity, rosemary and such to make it smell good.

    SC, grilling is done on a grill (outdoors with charcoal...or on the range if you have an indoor grill) broiling is when placed in the oven on broil. Broiling, imho, dries it out a bit to much.

    shouldn't

    make a big difference. boiling will take out a lot of the flavor though IMO. i like roasting or grilling. shouldn't make a difference (although, i'm not sure as to the quality of popeye's chicken...i don't know if they load it up with oil etc before cooking)

    The nutritional value of chicken should not change based on the method of cooking. If you are making boneless skinless chicken, the only thing that will change the amt of fats, cals, etc will be what you add to it. Different cooking methods are done by cooks/chefs to get different textures and flavors so they can have different side dishes with it .

    Hope that answers it.

    Yeah, ditto, it depends on what cut of chicken you are using. I am guessing breasts, but I'm not certain.

    I hate being on diet. At work tonite there was two whole pans of fried chicken left over. I could have eaten it all by my self, but nooooooooo, fried chicken has too much fat in it from the frying process. So everyone else was eatin one or two pieces, wtf, you cant bulk on that, you gotta eat like 7 or 8 pieces to get full then throw in some pasta! Lousy fat tastin so good.

    If you do it yourself, there shouldn't be much difference between grilling and roasting. The only difference would be if your roasting a whole chicken or a piece of meat with higher fat content. While grilling, the fat would run off but wile roasting (unless you have it raised out of the pan), the meat sits in the fat. You could set it on some paper towels before eating so that would take care of it.

    Be careful though about buying roasted chicken from a restaurant - especially a fast food joint. They often slather it with all kinds of fat and continue to baste it while it's cooking.

    Grilling all fats run down so you are not getting as much fat as you would from roasting it in its own fat i guess

    Forman grill is amazing cooks fast and most of the fat or a lot of it rolls down the side
