Poached chicken breast
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 4
Cook a chicken breast in an infused liquid for a beautifully tender, lightly seasoned piece of meat that's perfect for adding to salads, soups and sandwiches
- STEP 1
Tip the carrot, celery and garlic into a large saucepan. Tie the herbs together in a bunch with a piece of kitchen string, then add to the pan with the chicken breasts, water and 2 tsp salt (adding a little more water if it doesn’t quite cover the chicken). Bring to the boil, then immediately lower to a simmer and cook over a very low heat for 10-12 mins, or until the juices run clear in the thickest part of the breast.
- STEP 2
Remove the pan from the heat and scoop out the chicken breasts from the poaching liquid. Slice or tear the chicken into pieces and use in salads, soups or sandwiches.
