This recipe is great for two things: cooking super succulent chicken, and impressing friends with your new french cooking skills!

Just remember the key to the perfect poached chicken is to put your chicken into cold water. Then bring it to a simmer SLOWLY! We took 25-30minutes to get to a simmer in this video.

As soon as the water is simmering take your chicken out and let it rest (still inside its wrapping). Yeew! Your going to love this one!

Give it a go and let us know how you go.
