20 Minute Perfect Poached Chicken

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
