I never thought that soaking chicken in milk can make it more tender and juicy so I tried it myself. It is indeed true! I soaked my chicken for 4 hours and the result is amazing. The inside did not dried out and the flavor of the marinade penetrated through the chicken. Try it out yourself, your kids will surely love it 🙂
