Sous Vide Chicken and Sauteed Broccolini Recipe

Sous vide chicken is an easy weeknight meal, regardless of how you serve it. When I'm in a rush I'll often just saute some vegetables to serve with it, in this case some broccolini and red bell peppers. I give it all a squirt of lemon juice, top it with some fresh herbs and edible flowers from the garden and it's ready to go!

I like my sous vide chicken breasts cooked at 141°F (60.6°C) until pasteurized, normally 2 to 3 hours. Though you can go for a higher temperature if you prefer. I usually give them a quick sear after sous viding them to add a little bit of flavor and color, but it is optional.

When I want to try some more flavorful chicken, I often turn to Crowd Cow.
