The plan here is to cook something new once a week. For social media purposes, I’m going with #waterbathwednesday to keep track of each weeks new protein or dish.
As you probably guessed, this week it’s chicken, sous-vide.
Step 1 is easy. Remove from packaging and put in mixing bowl. Add seasonings for bath (I used sea salt, garlic salt, pepper) and mix to thorough coverage.
Step 2 is simple, too. Bag the bird parts!
Step 3. Drop in the water bath.
Cook at 165 F for 90 minutes.
Steps 4 and 5. After the bath, remove from bag and place in baking pan. Season with finishing seasonings. I used smoked garlic, paprika, salt and ground pepper.
Step 6. Finish by baking at 450, for 15 minutes. After the first 15 minutes, turn the meat and bake another 15 minutes.
Remember to let it sit a minute before you dive in- no matter how good it smells and looks! You don’t need to burn any fingers or tongues!
