Ok so big chicken breasts can be pretty bland. Would you ever tear them up and put in a frying pan with chicken broth to reheat them?

Depends on how they were cooked in the first place! Not enough info.

I think it will really dry out. You'd be better of steaming it whole in a bit of broth.

I use leftover chicken breasts cold usually - either chicken salad, or thin strips to top a green salad, pasta salad, or make a sandwich from.

You could shred them and put them it broth to re-heat them but it won't solve the problem that they are bland.

You could simmer them with some fresh or canned tomatoes, garlic and basil and add some flavor. Toss them in with a jar of salsa verde. Add some curry powder to the broth. Caramelize some onions, add the chicken and deglaze with some white wine.

I would suggest mixing salsa in with the pulled chicken, and then heat in a fry pan. This is how I make tacos.

I usually wet brine them and cook them on the grill. Not bland. They can also be stuffed with something that will keep them moist. You could also marinate them. I prefer Cuban style mojo made with fresh sour orange juice.

I'd reheat them in gravy or barbecue sauce. Otherwise just cover tightly and reheat in the microwave.

I have some leftover grilled chicken satay in the fridge. The Lobo mix where it marinates in the Package A curry and is served with Package B spicy peanut mix, coconut milk, and a splash of vegetable oil. I just eat that cold making sure it has plenty of peanut sauce on it.

If I’m mass cooking chicken breast to have cooked chicken on hand, I poach it in chicken stock, white wine, and herbs so it doesn’t dry out.

I would add mayo, onion, grapes, and nuts and make chicken salad.
