How To Cook Chicken Breast Sous Vide

Chicken Breast is a tender cut, and does not contain much fat (except for the skin). As a result, chicken breast is best cooked by safely pasteurizing it at your desired temperature, but not exposing it to lengthy cooking times. One of the best ways to prepare chicken breast sous vide is to cook it a lower temperature, like 140ºF. Then sear it in a blazing hot pan. The result is an incredibly moist sous vide chicken breast that is safe to eat and incredibly delicious.
