Perfectly Poached Chicken

Whenever I buy chicken breasts, I break them down, into boneless-skinless chicken breasts.

Not wanting to waste anything, I throw the chicken ribs into a pot, for poaching.

Once the water is brought up to a boil, put a lid on the pot and set a timer for 30 minutes.

What you end up with, is perfectly poached chicken.

Let the chicken cool, then pick the meat off the bones. I like to use the chicken meat for: Chicken Pot Pie, Chicken Salad, BBQ Chicken Quesadillas, BBQ Chicken Sandwiches, Chicken and Noodles, and so on. Use immediately, or freeze for future use.

Chicken ribs

Place chicken in a dutch oven. Cover chicken with water. Bring water to a boil, over high heat. Once water has started to boil, cut off heat and place a tight fitting lid over dutch oven. Let chicken sit, covered, for 30 minutes. Let chicken cool, then pick meat off the bone. Use immediately, in your favorite chicken recipe. Or freeze for future use.
