poached chicken breasts – your go-to protein!

Happy Friday evening y’all!!  After several days of nonstop wining and dining, I need some comfort food tonight!!!  So I am poaching – and then shredding boneless, skinless chicken breasts which will be added to a chicken stock base along with either leftover, plain thin spaghetti, or rice noodles and baby bok choy.  I’ll top it with some scallions for freshness……and then enjoy the deliciousness.  Grabbed my iPhone to capture the shot without having to fuss with my DSLR tonight – it’s the food that counts and I love to share!!  The onion powder is almost the “secret” ingredient I guess you could say – it’s something both my mom and grandmother added a generous amount of when they were making turkey stock for Thanksgiving.  So that pretty much stayed with me through the years and it works beautifully in the poaching liquid.

Poaching chicken breasts are super easy….and once cooked, you can either use them either right away, or store in the fridge for salads or tacos or anything that your heart desires.  I actually made chicken breasts this way when my son was little – the juicy, soft texture is perfect for little ones – and those who are teenagers with braces.  😉

They just came out of the poaching liquid…..swoon.  Please make this.  You will never regret it.
