Make a creamy lemon garlic sauce with moist chicken breasts using the Anova Precision Oven. Both steam and the oven’s sous vide mode help to keep the chicken tender and juicy, and using the probe ensures that the chicken does not overcook. Once the chicken is cooked, switch the oven to a high heat dry cook to simmer the lemon cream sauce so that you don’t have to use your stovetop for anything other than browning the chicken.
