Ingredients

Costco Chicken Breast – Do not open the vacuum pack it comes in. If you have a package that might be leaking, put in another vacuum sealed bag or a ziploc with the air out of it.  So you can do two at a time. Look closely, each pair has a separate package that can be trimmed.

Setup

Frozen – Set the sous vide for 146 degrees and 2 hours.
Thawed – Set the sous vide for 150 degrees and 1 hours.
The FDA says “Cook all poultry to an internal temperature of 165 °F”

Recipe

  1. Setup up your sous vide
  2. Put Costco Chicken Breast in the basin using the vacuum sealed bag it came in.
  3. Set the sous vide for 150 degrees and 1 hour.
  4. Cut open the bag
  5. Remove the everything that isn’t chicken breast.
  6. Enjoy the greatest Chicken Breast ever

Are you crazy?

No, I really like chicken breast. I like having it around. I used to George Foreman it. All the time. It’s not bad. It gets old, but it gets dry. This was literally the first thing I thought of when I learned about sous vide cooking.

No muss, no fuss. There is probably a food scientist that will say that the vacuum bags aren’t good enough and cause gills. I don’t mind being able to breathe underwater. My wife thinks Jason Momoa is hot. Jason Momoa is Aquaman. Win = Win = Win.

The FDA says “Cook all poultry to an internal temperature of 165 °F”

Yes, they do. The general consensus of sous vide recipes is that 146 degrees for more than an hour. I usually turn my chicken breast into tacos, which get heated up in the microwave before I eat them. I have also eaten the chicken fresh out of the sous vide. It’s probably the best plain chicken you will ever try.

Clean up is easier.

If you have ever cleaned a George Foreman Grill or anything that chicken has been cooked in, you are going to want to try this.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Delicious Chicken Breast with no hassle
  • Wife may confuse me with Jason Momoa
  • Have chicken lying around for other recipes
  • Easiest Clean up

Cons

  • May Cause Gills
  • May Cause Veganism. The stuff that is not chicken breast in the package is not my favorite thing to see.
  • The FDA says “Cook all poultry to an internal temperature of 165 °F”
