Ok, so at this very moment, I am trying to cook chicken thighs from the store. I put them in the pan and tossed on some garlic, spices, oil, and added no water. Now that it's cooking, there is about 1/2 inch of water in the pan that came out from the meat. I have I think 12 pieces in this pan. This time around, I will be pouring out the liquid. But in the future, how do I pre prepare the meat so not so much water seeps out when it cooks? I don't really have this problem when I cook up my own birds, but these are the commercial type. Or is this something that I just didn't notice before!
