This guide will help you prepare a delicious meal using your sous vide ready chicken and sauces. First we break down the best method for cooking your chicken and heating up your sauces in Suvie. Then we provide recommendations for vegetables, grains, and pastas that pair perfectly with your chicken and chef-crafted sauces. Lastly, we suggest our favorite combinations of sauces, vegetables, and starches to pair with your chicken to build a complete meal.
Order your vacuum-sealed chicken and gourmet sauces directly from Suvie.
Please note that when using the sous vide mode in your Suvie we always recommend using the bottom zone. Because sous vide uses precise temperature control, it is important to cook in the bottom zone so that rising heat does not impact the temperature of the water in the top zone. You can sous vide in the top zone, but keep in mind that the temperature in this zone may be slightly higher than in the bottom zone. For more information on temperature and cooking times for chicken, click here.
1) Place vacuum-sealed chicken into a Suvie pan and cover with water.
2) Insert the pan into the bottom zone of your Suvie. Input the following settings, and cook now or schedule. If cooking from frozen, be sure to select “Yes” when asked if cooking from frozen.
Suvie Cook Settings
Bottom Zone: Sous Vide at 155°F for 1 hour
3) After the cook, remove the chicken from its packaging and pat dry thoroughly. Pour sauce* into a Suvie pan and insert into the top zone of Suvie. Arrange chicken in a roasting rack set in a Suvie pan.
4) Set the top zone of Suvie to Reheat Mode for 15 minutes and the bottom zone to Broil for 7 minutes or until chicken is browned and fragrant.
5) Divide chicken between plates and serve with your selected sauce, or read on to learn how you can add your own vegetables and starches to build a complete meal.
*We recommend heating the Thai Coconut, Cilantro Lime, Lemon Herb, Marinara, Pesto, and Vodka Sauce in your Suvie. The Teriyaki, BBQ, Garlic Herb Butter, and Honey Mustard Glaze taste best when drizzled directly onto the chicken before broiling.
