Ingredients

Directions

In a large saucepan or kettle (depending on the number of chicken breasts to be poached) combine the chicken breasts with enough cold water to cover them by 1 inch. Remove the chicken, bring the water to a boil, and add salt to taste. Return the chicken to the pan and poach it at a bare simmer for 17 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat, let the chicken cool in the liquid for 30 minutes, and drain it.
