Chicken Breast 101
December 14, 2021
This basic, no-frills recipe for cooking fantastic skinless chicken breasts in the Anova Precision Oven is a great starting point to add your own spin.
In this recipe, the chicken breast is cooked using sous vide express. The oven temperature is set just above the target doneness we're after, which gives sous-vide-like results, where the doneness is perfect from edge to edge, but with a dramatically shorter cooking time. It's a happy compromise between the perfection of equilibrium cooking and traditional cooking. Using 100% steam will help the meat retain all of its flavorful juices, since they can't evaporate into already humidified air.
Notes: This method works for both boneless and bone-in skinless chicken breasts. You can scale the recipe up to as many portions as you like and the times and temperatures will remain the same.
