How to cook chicken breast?
Chicken is an incredibly versatile ingredient that can be used to make an endless amount of delicious dishes. Chicken breast can be fried, pan-seared, poached and baked in the oven, giving the home chef a variety of cooking options. A delicious way to enjoy chicken breast is to make chicken schnitzels by slicing breasts thinly then crumbing then in eggs and panko breadcrumbs.. Alternatively, marinate chicken breasts in olive oil, lemon, chilli and dill (we sell these in store). These need a quick pan fry in olive oil for an easy mid-week dinner served with a bright green salad and roast potatoes.
How to poach chicken breast?
Poaching chicken breast is a wonderful way to cook that produces lovely, tender meat. Place the chicken breasts in a saucepan with some aromatics and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over a medium-high heat before reducing to a simmer and covering to cook for 8 minutes or until cooked through. We like this especially during summer sliced atop a crunchy Vietnamese-style slaw.
