Poached Chicken with Ramen Noodles and Ginger and Sansho Pepper Flavour Pearls

After more than 25 years of cheffing in commercial kitchens I’m happy to say that I have just learned a fabulous new way to make poached chicken that gives you 100% juicy chicken every time! Love, love, love to learn a new trick. Read on.

What you’ll need…

To do…

Take the chicken out of the fridge around 30 minutes before cooking. Fill a saucepan with water so the chicken breast will be well submerged with at least 5 cm of water above it. Bring water to boil. Put the chicken breast in the  water, place lid on and bring back up to the boil. Remove saucepan from stove and set aside for 20 to 45 minutes. You will just have to try this method to believe it. I promise that it really works…juicy chicken any one? *feel free to add some bruised lemon grass, ginger and other aromatics to the water before you add the chicken. Here is a link to a Master Stock recipe*
Pop another pot on the stove to cook your noodles. Just follow the instructions on the packet for best results.

Ready to serve

Remove the chicken breast from the pot and slice thinly. Drain the liquid from the Ginger & Sansho Flavour Pearls and add to the cooked noodles as a dressing.

We are serving ours slightly warm to room temperature.

Next place a dressed portion of the cooked ramen noodles on to your serving platter then arrange the sliced chicken with it. Top with a generous spoonful of Ginger & Sansho Flavour Pearls and a sprinkle of julienne nori sheet.

Until next time

Enjoy…
