Hi there!

This might sound stupid, but how do I poach chicken breasts? I want to make chinese-style chicken and sweetcorn soup, but I need to cook the chicken first and don't really want to grill or fry it.

Can anyone tell me how long to poach chicken breasts, and do I just put them in a saucepan of water??

Confused.com! :confused:

i know it might sound odd, but you can just boil them in a pan of water and theyll be fine, they stay nice and juicy and you can rip them up to go in your soup, hope that helps xxx

Thanks Emma-louise!

The recipe is this:

Chicken and Sweetcorn soup (Serves 4)

1 bunch of spring onions sliced
Frylight to fry off the spring onions
14oz (400g) can of creamed sweetcorn
4 oz frozen sweetcorn (tinned is fine though)
6oz cooked chicken meat
1+1/4 pints of chicken stock
1 egg, beaten

Method:

1. Fry spring onions for 30 seconds
2. Add creamed and frozen sweetcorn, chicken and stock
3. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 5 minutes
4. Bring almost to the boil, add beaten egg slowly, while gently stirring soup to form egg threads
5. Cook until the egg has set - do not boil

Syn free soup on EE, or could use chicken as a HexB on Green, and almost as good as chicken and sweetcorn soup from the Chinese! :D

That's my dinner for tonight sorted, yum yum!
