The Ease and Versatility of Poached Chicken

Poaching chicken is easy and will provide a number of versatile and tasty meals like the chicken walnut salad shown above (photo by LivligaHome).

Poached meats are easy to prepare and, because their flavor is so simple, they can be used in so many different kinds of dishes. I have talked with many friends and acquaintances who have an aversion to leftovers. To them, leftovers means eating day old soggy food. But like everyone wanting to have more home cooked, healthier foods in their diet, they don’t have time to cook from scratch for each meal. Poached meats gives new meaning to leftovers.

Poached chicken can be a delicacy for dinner; right after it has been cooked. The next day more of the same meat can be cut up in chunks and used in a salad. Additional dishes can be made where it can be included in omelets, chicken salad nestled in a half of a cantaloupe or used in an Asian wrap. The uses for poached chicken are not only versatile but also almost infinite. To read the entire article and see the recipe click here...
