How to poach a turkey breast

Poaching is a gentle cooking technique that helps keep the potentially dry turkey meat succulent and tender. It is important to cook the turkey breast on a low heat and not boil it as this will toughen the meat.

Method

1
Put the turkey breasts, stock, vegetables, thyme, garlic and salt into a large saucepan and bring to a very gentle simmer over a low heat
2
Cook for 8–10 minutes, the turkey is cooked when it is firm to the touch
3
Serve immediately

Uses

Poached turkey breast can be used in salads, curries and sandwiches, for example, Dominic Chapman uses poached leg in his Turkey, Stilton, chicory and walnut salad.
