Poached and shredded chicken

I have searched around and found several recipes for poaching and shredding chicken using my Bellini.

It is a handy thing to have in the fridge for a sandwich filling. I love that I know exactly when and how it was cooked and how long it will keep for.

I have been using this recipe from Quirky Cooking.

 

Poached chicken (Thanks to Chef Laurent)

Place water and 1 chopped garlic, and a few herbs if you like, in Bellini bowl and cook for 5 mins at 100 degrees on speed 1.

Place chicken inside simmering basket & place in Bellini bowl. Ensuring chicken is covered in water, cook as follows or until cooked through.

100g chicken approx 6 mins at 100 degrees on speed 2, 1000g water

200g chicken approx 8 mins at 100 degrees on speed 2, 1200g water

500g chicken approx 10 mins at 100 degrees on speed 2, 1500g water

Let the chicken cool in the poaching liquid. This helps it stay moist.

Shredding Chicken

Place drained chicken in bellini bowl. Shred chicken on speed 4, blunt blade for around 7-10 seconds. Extra shredded chicken can be placed in the freezer to later use.

 

There you go, quick easy and fresh!
