You can't beat poaching for chicken that is moist and tender. Once it's cooled, store extra in the freezer for quick meals.—James Schend, Taste of Home Food Editor
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
- 1/2 cup white wine
- Aromatic ingredients: 6 whole peppercorns, 3 thyme sprigs, 1 rosemary sprig, 1 smashed garlic clove and 1 bay leaf
- 1 teaspoon salt
- In a skillet or saucepan just large enough to hold chicken in one layer, combine chicken, wine, aromatics and salt; add cold water to cover by 1 in. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer, covered, until a thermometer reads 170°, 15-20 minutes. Serve warm, or cool completely before refrigerating.
