Easy and Tasty Homemade Chicken Ham

Make chicken ham without artificial seasonings. It's easy and yet very moist and delicious! Your kids will love it.

Ingredients: 1 chicken breast's worth

Chicken breast (large)
1 teaspoon
1 tablespoon
Zip-top bag (or plastic bag)


1. Sprinkle salt and sugar in order on chicken skin. Work with your hands. You can completely remove the skin if you wish!
2. Put the chicken from step 1 into a zip or plastic bag. Remove air pockets and seal tightly. Chill in the fridge for 1 whole day.
3. Place the chicken from Step 2 on plastic wrap, making sure the skin is facing down. Cover it up like a candy wrapper and fold both ends inside.
4. Wrap another sheet of plastic wrap. *This is to secure the edges of the 'candy' wrap.
5. Use a rubber band to wrap up from the center to the right, then to the left.
6. Use a large-sized pot that would fit the chicken. Boil plenty of water for the chicken to soak in. Put the chicken in and let it come to a boil again. Cook for 8 minutes, then turn the heat off.
7. Cover the pot and set it aside until it cools down. Slice into smaller pieces as you like, arrange on a serving dish, and voila!
