Crockpot Recipe: Poached Chicken

With colds and all kinds of illnesses going around, it pays to have chicken soup ready to go at a moment's notice. However, a lot of people don't know how easy it is to add delicious chicken into soup, settling instead for rubbery, tough chunks of meat. Say it with me: control the heat, control the delicious.


You will need ...

  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 2-3 chicken breasts

Place chicken in the slow cooker (Or a soup pot on the stove). Pour the stock in, and bring to an almost boil over high heat (If your stock boils, that's fine, just don't let it keep boiling). Once you reach the almost-boil, turn the heat down to low (if you're going stovetop, cover the pot now), and let it go! You may see a bit of foam or scum on the surface- just skim this off with a spoon. The chicken will be done in 8-10 minutes, succulent and delicious. Eat with the soup, or however you like (it makes the world's best chicken salad, or chicken for a salad)!
