This method of poaching chicken is so easy. The chicken turns out very moist and delicious. I like to chop or shred the chicken and keep some in the freezer. When I want to make a chicken salad, chicken enchiladas, or any recipe that calls for chicken, its all cooked and ready!
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 pound)
water or chicken broth
Salt, pepper or your favorite herbs
Place the chicken in a single layer in a large sauté pan and cover with water or chicken broth. If you wish, you may add salt and pepper or herbs. Place over medium-high heat and bring to a boil.
After the water has come to a boil, cover the pan, turn off the heat, and let the chicken sit for 20 minutes. Keep the lid on the chicken. After 20 minutes, transfer the chicken to a plate. Shred or chop as desired.
Makes about 3 cups
