Sous Vide Chicken Breast with Stuffing and Wild Garlic Mayo

What is sous vide method good for?

When cooking in a sous vide pot, you will use quite a low temperature, which means that you will cook the meat for a long time and thanks to that it will be very tender and juicy.

Can I use chicken breasts only?

The answer is absolutely yes! If you prefer chicken legs or any other meat, feel free to try anything you like. Just be careful about the temperature and time of cooking, because it can differ with every kind of meat.

Which bread should I use for the stuffing?

In my view the best is a classic toast bread but I’ve seen that somebody uses also sourdough, so it depends on what you like. The more important question is how old the bread should be. It is better not to use fresh bread, because it will soak with milk, so you should try some bread which is a bit dry.
