Sous Vide Chicken BreastMake on Drop
Why cook sous vide? The answer to that is more complex than the method! I have simplified the sous vide process down in this recipe. Any Thermomixer can handle it. No need for the TM6 to make it work for you. It results in amazing moist chicken (in this recipe) that you can then sear and serve, shred and serve, slice and serve. The potential is amazing. You do not need a vacuum sealed bag, though that could be helpful. I used a Stasher Bag which are widely available online or in stores. (The benefits of Stasher bags are that they have a raft of great uses!)
- Enhanced flavours
- Healthier result
- Better textures and tenderness
- Never overcooked
- Perfect every time
- Stress-free cooking
- Bulk cooking
- Money saver
- Freeze for later
If you haven't tried this method yet, it is time to get some chicken on! You will find you may not go back to cooking chicken any other way!

- 1 large chicken breast, whole
- 50 Grams Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) or more as needed BUY
- 1 Handful fresh herbs of choice (we used thyme)
- 30 Grams Fresh Lemon Juice
- 2-3g Garlic Cloves smashed but unpeeled
- 2 Pinches Pink Salt Flakes BUY
- water for steaming
You will need a Stasher Bag or vacuum sealer for this recipe.
Place the chicken into the Stasher Bag or bag you will use to seal the chicken in.
Add all the other ingredients and seal the bag. If using a Stasher, you need to expel as much air as possible from the bag prior to sealing.
Massage the chicken with the ingredients and make sure the chicken is covered with the oil and lemon juice. Allow to marinate for a minimum of 4 hours but up to 48 hours in the fridge.
When ready to cook, place 1L of water into the Thermomix bowl and insert the simmering basket. Place the chicken inside the bag into the simmering basket.
Cover with more water if needed. The water doesn't need to fully cover the chicken in the bag, but should certainly come up at least half way. Cook 20 min/80°C/speed 3.
If you are using the TM6 you can use the blade cover and eliminate the simmering basket. Just place the bag directly into the Thermomix bowl with the blade cover in place.
Serve as you would any other chicken, we drizzled with EVOO, added a sprig of thyme and a lime cheek then served it sliced with salad. It was pretty amazing.
