Chicken breasts yield some of the best results that sous vide cooking delivers.

It's also a great way to dress up your salads with protein. Chicken breasts served as a maindish typically are cooked at a lower temperature than chicken added to soups or salads.The tender and juicy results of cooking at 140'F aren't always ideal when chicken is used asa topping for other dishes. For that reason, we increase the temperature when chicken isn'tthe focus of a particular dish, like here. Increasing the temperature provides a moretraditional texture that is closer to what you would find at a beach side lunch spot.
