How to Cook Chicken Thighs Sous Vide Recipe | D’Artagnan

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Using the sous vide equipment of your choice, preheat a water bath to 165 degrees F.
  2. Pat chicken thighs dry then season both sides with salt and pepper. Place thighs in a single layer in a vacuum bag; vacuum and seal. Place chicken in the water bath and cook for 2 hours.
  3. Heat a heavy skillet over medium-high heat and add about a tablespoon of oil.
  4. Remove chicken from the bag and blot thoroughly dry with paper towels. (Save rendered juices for pan-sauce if you desire.)
  5. Sear chicken thighs, starting skin-side down, until golden brown. Turn chicken over and sear meat side, then turn them again to sear skin-side down until maximum crispiness is achieved. Rest chicken for a few minutes before serving.
