Sous Vide Chicken Soup Recipe

People often don't think about adding sous vide chicken to dishes that would normally cook it. A great example is this flavorful chicken soup. Normally you cook the chicken in the soup, but it usually dries it out and overcooks it. Making the soup separately with some flavorful chicken stock and lots of vegetables while you cook the chicken sous vide results in more tender chunks of chicken.

Make sure you use good chicken stock, I recommend making your own at home, it's really easy, especially if you have a pressure cooker. Here's my recipe for turkey stock, but it would work with chicken just as well.

I usually sous vide my chicken breasts at 141°F (60.5°C) until they are pasteurized, but you can go a little higher or lower depending on how you like them done.

When I want to try some more flavorful chicken, I often turn to Crowd Cow.
