How To Poach Chicken

Whenever I do roast chicken for Sunday lunch, I try to buy a really large one so I have leftover meat to make chicken pie or chicken tartiflette later in the week. However, inevitably there's not quite enough. In the past I've tried baking a couple of chicken breasts in the oven but they tend to go quite dry around the edges unless they're wrapped in bacon first.

A friend recommended poaching chicken instead. It's so quick and easy to do and the meat is beautifully tender and easy to shred.

There are traditional ways of poaching chicken with herbs, but this is a cheats way with perfect results every time.

Preparation Time: 2 minutes
Cooking Time: 15-20 minutes

Chicken breasts (as many as you need for your recipe)
Good quality chicken stock

Place the chicken breasts in a pan of chicken stock, with enough stock to fully cover the chicken.
Simmer gently for 15 to 20 minutes. Smaller chicken breasts will take less time to poach than larger ones.

Remove the chicken breasts from the stock and allow to cool before shredding.
