Ghetto Sous Vide Chicken.
Poaching is something that many people will associate with eggs or fish more so then chicken. But I've been eating poached chicken ever since I was a small child when I was still in Thailand. I think one of the thing that really is off putting for people is that they think that poached chicken is flavorless and the skin is like rubber. Lets face it, the best part of chicken if probably the skin. So a good way to really add flavors to poached chicken is to season it with whatever you want and then seal in in a vacuum bag and then poach it. As for the skin, I just remove it altogether and crisp it in a low over to render it crispy so it can make it's way back into the dish. This way you still get the crunch from the skin and the chicken mean is very flavorful and moist. Also the "torchons", once sliced up, looked great the plates.
