Sous Vide Chicken in Ancho Chile Paste

We eat chicken frequently in our house and cooking them in the sous vide produces meat that is tender and juicy. Boneless skinless chicken breast is often overcooked, but in the sous vide, you can ensure that it is cooked perfectly every time. This recipe marinates the chicken in an ancho chili paste. The dried ancho chilies give the chicken a wonderful Mexican flavor. This is perfect for the next time you make fajitas!
