How to Poach Chicken

Once you know how to poach chicken, the possibilities are endless. Poaching (a moist-heat cooking method) means to cook something in barely simmering liquid (perfect for delicate foods, like eggs and fish), and it is, sadly, almost a forgotten way of cooking -- sad because it's an incredibly simple technique, it can yield the most tender, juicy meat without the fat and calories from frying or sauteing, and keeps your kitchen cooler than baking or roasting. Some poaching recipes, like the one below, use the poaching liquid itself as a sauce; it only needs only be reduced and thickened to provide the perfect accompaniment for your poached chicken dish.

How to Make Chicken Alfredo

Everyone should learn how to make chicken Alfredo. Why? It's a classic Italian recipe, its creamy richness is irresistible, and even the picky eaters in your family (you know, the ones who are in the phase of only eating "white" food?) will love it. In fact, that's sort of how Alfredo sauce was invented: Italian chef Alfredo di Lelio created the sauce to appeal to his pregnant wife who had lost her appetite for most foods. It soon became a top seller at his restaurant, Alfredo alla Scrofa. The restaurant, located in Rome, is still doing business today, and still serves their signature Alfredo sauce over chicken and pasta.
