* To poach chicken – Use a knife to slice the breast down the middle before cooking to ensure the centre cooks thoroughly.   Place chicken breast into a large saucepan and add boiling water till it just covers chicken. Bring to the boil and then reduce to low heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes till chicken is cooked through.
