Crispy-Skin Sous Vide Chicken Breast

Straight out of the Anova Precision® Cooker, this sous vide chicken is delicious and juicy. But it’s even better when the skin is seared in a sauté pan. In fact, we believe there are few foods more perfect than crispy chicken. This crispy-skin Sous Vide Chicken Breast is no exception. For this recipe, we tested one breast sealed in the bag with olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper; the other with nothing else. Both were crazy moist and tender, but not surprisingly, the seasoned chicken was was far more flavorful. Another option would be to brine the chicken before cooking, but it’s not necessary. We can’t imagine chicken breast being any more tender, moist, or flavorful than the result of this recipe.
