How to Poach Chicken Breast:

  • Cover chicken breast in broth in a small pot, add water if it doesn’t cover the chicken.
  • Add salt and pepper, a piece of celery and it’s leaves (you could add herbs like parsley, garlic, onion, or whatever you want) and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, cover tight and let it sit for 15-20 minutes or until thickest part of the breast registers 160 degrees.
  • Chicken will be cooked through. Let it cool and cut into small cubes.
