These chicken breasts are wrapped in prosciutto and stuffed with Boursin cheese before being cooked over fresh thyme and garlic-infused cherry tomatoes. The Anova Precision Oven’s sous vide mode ensures perfectly cooked chicken breast every time, and a quick switch to dry heat makes for a browned, crispy end product! Note: This recipe has been updated to use Sous Vide Express to cook the chicken in the first stage.
