A perfectly crisp, juicy chicken with savory Mexican spices

Sous Vide Red Chili Chicken (Adobado)

2 hours 30 minutes active

Sous vide chicken stays incredibly moist and tender. We tried dry rubs, but cooking the meat with a flavorful sauce worked best. For our flavorful red chili sauce (adobado), we liked the earthy, fruity flavor of ancho chilies, but pasilla, guajillo and pulla chilies worked, too. For a milder heat, remove the seeds after stemming the chilies. Serve with rice or tortillas and sour cream. For an equally flavorful but simpler alternative, cook each chicken breast in ¼ cup coconut milk whisked with 2 teaspoons red curry paste.
