How to Poach Chicken
To get started on how to poach chicken, you will need:
- 1 pound skinless chicken pieces preferably breasts
- 3 to 4 cups water as needed
- 2 teaspoons of your choice of spices and herbs
Add about water into a cooking pot. Bring to a boil and turn down heat until the liquid starts to simmer gently.
Place the chicken pieces in the pan without overcrowding them. Make sure they are fully covered in your cooking liquid. Add spices and herbs.
Cover partially with a lid and cook until the meat is soft and loses its pink color. If the chicken is still oozing blood, cook further until done. Serve with the broth.
