Steps | Poached Chicken Breast and Sweet Corn Broth

  1. Prepare boiling water
  2. To a medium to large stock pot, add the water, onion, bay leaf, rosemary, thyme, cumin, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then add the chicken breasts. Poach the chicken in a medium boil for 12 - 15 minutes or until cooked through.

  3. Remove chicken breast.
  4. Once cooked, remove the chicken breast. Set aside most (70 - 80%) of the chicken to use for primary purpose (chicken enchiladas, chicken nachos, etc.). Shred the remaining 20 - 30% of the chicken breast and return to the water used to poach the chicken.

    Bring water back to a boil and add sweet corn, and balsamic vinegar. Reduce heat to simmer and continue simmering until the liquid has reduced to approximately 30% (2 - 2 1/2 cups) of the original amount.

    Adjust to for salt and pepper and serve.
