Recipe Notes

  • Be sure there’s enough water in your pot that you can fully submerge the bag containing the chicken breasts in it.
  • We’re removing as much air as possible from the vacuum seal bag or Ziplock bag is so that it won’t float above the water. In order to cook the chicken breasts properly, they must be fully submerged in the hot water.
  • If you want your chicken breasts to come out juicy, cook them in 145 degrees F. But if you want them to be firm, you can set the sous vide’s temperature to 165 degrees F.
