Great, easy and flavorful way to prep chicken breasts. I didn't have a cover so I had to improvise with a pie tin and was surprised by how moist they were and the nice sauce they created. I used boneless skinless packed breasts and did cook them at 375 for 40 minutes to get them to 175/180.

Easy peasy way to get wonderfully moist and delicious chicken. I did need to cook for close to a half hour to bring to 175 degrees. I used a mixture of garlic and herbs instead of salt but did add a bit of salt when it was done. I used the chicken for panini's and it worked great. The leftover chicken will make a great chicken salad sandwich. Thanks for sharing this wonderful way to poach chicken.

Very easy way to make moist chicken breasts. I replaced butter with olive oil and salt with poultry seasoning and garlic powder, to make it a little more heart healthy. I guess my chickens were still defrosting, so it took more like 45 minutes to cook through. Thanks for the idea.

I have made this twice now, and we love it. It is so great to make several at one time and have these ready when a recipe calls for cooked chicken. One note: I do use a meat themometer to let me know when the internal temperature is getting near 170. I take them out at that point and let them rest to 180. Perfect everytime. Thanks for a great and easy way to poach chicken.

This is a quick easy way to poach chicken, I needed some cooked chicken breasts to make Coronation Chicken (90678) and used this recipe. The breasts were quite thick so took a little longer (25 mins in total) but they were lovely and moist and a perfect way to poach chicken. Thanks for sharing!
