Cook's Notes

You can flavor the poaching liquid with whatever aromatics you have on hand. This recipe is just a guideline -- try fresh ginger and soy sauce or orange and rosemary.

    My chicken salad is extra special when I poach my chicken breast this way!

    This recipe results in several meals plus a little treat for our dog (the chopped up carrots from the broth and knoby bits after shredding the chicken). The chicken becomes divan or enchiladas, the broth becomes seasonal soup. Try this recipe on a rainy afternoon.

    Love this simple recipe. I always add some white wine which really makes it great! I cook up a batch for salads, sandwiches, etc. Nice, moist, tender and tasty!
