    Default the way to make poaching chicken?

    As fond as one may be of bacon and butter, sometimes the body just wants something light. What do you make when you want a light meal? Someone recommended poaching chicken to me,and told me the way to make it generally, but i forgot the info totally, anyone here knows?

    Thanks a lot.

    Hi Ciosisy

    People donít think of poaching poultry often enough. When I first heard of it in a book by Jeff Smith I was skeptical but it is very easy and works well consistently. I have made it many times.

    Take an 8 quart pot filled 2/3rds full of water and bring to a boil. When the water boils, place a cleaned chicken (2 Ĺ to 3 lbs.) in the water. It will stop boiling, remove the chicken. Cover the pot and wait for the water to again come to a boil. When it is boiling again put the chicken back into the pot and cover the pot. Turn off the heat but keep the pot on the burner for 1 hour. At that point the chicken is done and is very easy to debone and serve.

    Best of Luck
