Chicken with booze!  That’s a lie, no booze involved I’m afraid, other than that consumed by the chef. Sous-vide is a great technique to try out and you don’t necessarily need a fancy machine at home to try it out!

A few weeks ago, I cooked Daniel Galmiche’s ‘Stuffed Chicken Breasts’ from his book ‘Revolutionary French Cooking. In this recipe, Galmiche sous-vide the chicken, basically vacuum packed and put into a water bath. It keeps the chicken lovely and moist and tender balanced with a crispy skin topping.

My mojito stuffing in my sous-vide chicken is sweet and tangy and is also not as tricky as you might think!

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts skin on
  • 1 ounce salted butter (30g)
  • 7 ounces cream cheese (200g)
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 3 tbsp chopped Mint
  • Salt & pepper

Instructions

  • Put the butter in a hot pan with a splash of oil.  When the butter is foaming, add in the chicken breasts, skin side down, fry for 5 mins until the skin is golden.  Pop them to one side.
  • In a small bowl mix the cream cheese, lime zest and mint.  Add a little salt and about a teaspoon of cracked black pepper.  Mix well.
  • Cut horizontally through the middle of each breast, about 3/4 of the way. Salt and pepper the inside.  Add in the cream cheese mixture into the breasts and fold back over (its fine if some oozes out!).
  • Take some cling film at wrap around the chicken and twist and secure the ends - it should resemble a sausage.  Put in fridge until ready to cook.
  • Put a small amount of water to the boil, pop in a steamer and add the chicken parcels.  Lid on for 12 mins.  Once the chicken is done, let it rest for about 6 mins.  When you unwrap the chicken, keep the sauces and you can use drizzle this on top of the chicken if you like.
