Not only is this colorful showstopper a feast for your eyes, but it’s also packed with tangy and savory goodness!  We’ve brought traditional holiday flavors into the mix by sous vide cooking our chicken in this zesty orange and cranberry mixture. While this works great as a “Cook Now” option in your Suvie, another option is to whip this up the night before and let the chicken marinade overnight for a more intense flavor.
