We decided to grill ours in a cast iron pan and the chicken turned out very flavorful and juicy! I’m pretty sure you can easily cook it in an oven or a turbo broiler too if you don’t have a lot of time in your hands. If you’re feeling extra fancy, go ahead and fire up that grill!

If you live alone, you can just stock a few packs in your freezer and cook it in your oven or turbo broiler while you’re getting ready. You’ll have a very tasty and healthy meal with very little effort. Aside from being healthy, did I mention that you get to save lots of money too if you choose to cook at home instead of eating out?

KOOK Manila’s cooking instructions:

  1. Place thawed chicken on a medium hot griddle.
  2. Cook the chicken pieces for 15-20 minutes, or until the juices run clear.
  3. Enjoy.

As I have mentioned before, I’m pretty sure you can cook it in a cast iron pan, an oven, or a turbo broiler too. Whatever is more convenient for you, to be honest. The chicken will still be as juicy and as flavorful for sure!

    That chicken recipe looks real yummy. I appreciate their advocacy for preparing healthy and delish food recipes. In this fast paced life having a well thought of dish is quite grueling. We always wanted to be convenient most of the time without giving too much attention to health. Would love to try this at home. I might do it in the oven! Its easy there i guess 🙂

    Oh how obsessed I am with chicken. I’d surely give Kook a try one of these days! Those chicken ughhh makes me crave for them now!

    Yum! I love the chicken variants available, and I can’t wait to try them myself. I am always on the lookout for healthy convenience food, so this one totally makes sense to me to buy. I imagine the chicken will be good with some red potatoes in a bit of olive oil and garlic, some mixed greens and light dressing. They look like they’d also be good with some tortillas and pico de gallo!
