This Soy Poached Chicken dish is a great way to add some variety to poached chicken, especially if you’re on a Bland Diet. The lemony gingery soy broth gives the chicken a delicious mildly Asian taste, and is perfect to jazz up steamed veggies and white rice.
1. In a wide deep skillet bring the shallots, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, lemon peel, lemon juice, sugar, and water to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for at least 10 minutes.
2. Just before serving, add the chicken, cover and cook for 10 minutes. Turn off the heat and continue to steam for 2 to 3 minutes.
3. Remove the chicken from the pot, and turn the heat up to medium-high. Reduce the sauce for about 3 to 5 minutes or until desired consistency. Pour over chicken and serve with chopped cilantro.
