METHOD

  1. Fill and preheat your water bath to 63.5C.
  2. Place 2 chicken breasts into a small (quart/0.9 liter) cooking pouch.
  3. Add the butter, salt, pepper, and herbs to the pouch and seal with your vacuum sealer.
  4. Place the pouch in the water bath, entirely covering it with water and cook for at least 1 hour, and up to 3 hours.*
  5. In a frying pan, melt the remaining butter over medium high heat before adding the garlic clove for additional flavour if you so wish.  Sear the breasts for about 45 to 60 seconds on each side to give it a golden, caramelized colour on the outside.
  6. Serve the tender, juicy chicken with accompaniments of your choice – vegetables, salad, chips….the options are endless!

Chef’s tip –

You can use sous vide chicken, unseared, straight from the pouch for chicken salad, to slice for chicken sandwiches, to add to soup or Caesar salad, and in many other dishes.
