    Choosing a foil

    Foil allows you to make the chicken softer and juicy. The main condition is to close the foil tightly so that all the juices remain inside. Then the chicken will not be overdried. To obtain a crispy crust, shortly before the end of cooking, the foil must be expanded.

    When you buy a foil, you should choose denser samples (11 microns thick). Such foil is more reliable, and is unlikely to break. When using thin sheets, it is better to wrap the product in two layers.
