    "make chicken breasts"? You don't "make" chicken breasts, you cook chicken breasts.

    Huge thread wow.

    With conventional cooking I would recommend an equilibrium brine. How good are you at math?

    The other way you can cook them is low and slow. Salt them first, and then either put them into Ziploc bags with the air sucked out and throw them into a 140F water bath (beer cooler) and give it an hour, or bake them in the oven at 175F until the center reaches 145F. Could take 2-3 hours this way. If going into the oven, best to sauce the breasts so that the outsides don't dry out too much from evaporation.

    Do these breasts have skin?

    I always like your tips, Howard--but come on! precisely no one has a home-made sous vide water bath.
    :D
