Perfectly Poached Chicken

Ingredients

Instructions

Wash the chicken breasts and pat dry with paper towels and remove any white connective tissues that will be tough and cut off any pieces of fat. Place the chicken breasts in a zip lock bag and pound the thicker parts until the breast is even and about 1/2″ thick (a little more is okay). If you have put them back in the fridge, you’ll want to bring them out to come to room temperature for 20 minutes. After about 10 minutes, pour the water into an 8 quart pot, cover and bring to a boil. Place the chicken breasts in the pot using tongs. Add the garlic, lemon, peppercorns, salt, parsley and bay leaf. Place the lid on and stay near the pot to catch it when is starts to boil again. Once the water is boiling, remove the pot from the heat keeping the lid on. Let sit undisturbed for 30 minutes. Take off the lid and transfer the chicken breasts from the pot to a plate to cool. When they are cool enough to handle, slice them lengthwise into four strips, turn and cut into bite-sized pieces (or you can tear them). Chill.
