 What going to make this chicken breast really juicy is putting the chicken breast into a brine of sea salt and ice cold water for a 30 minutes but no longer than 3 hours then you’re going to remove it and add it to your poaching liquid to cook it.

Poached Chicken Breasts with Mushrooms and Rice

The other day I was spending time with my father and he was talking about how much he loves chicken breast but when it is dry it is very hard for him swallow it, he went on to tell me that when he was younger that he did not have a problem eating or swallowing chicken breast so I decided to poach him some chicken breast that is going to be juicy with every bite he takes.

      Vocalcoach thank you so much if you can't find the smoked paprika let me know I own a spice company. To me the mushrooms are the sta of the dish but it's all about the poaching it is a very healthy way to cook food.

      I love cooking with mushrooms and add them to many recipes. Haven't heard of smoked paprika and it sounds lovely. Will be whipping this up as a surprise for my family. Sharing and thanks.
