For the Chicken

  • 2 x 500g double skinless chicken breasts

  12. Remove from oven and leave chicken to rest in bag for 10 minutes.
  13. Lift chicken out of bag and strain residue liquid from bag into a small saucepan to make gravy.
  14. Remove toothpicks then carefully slice chicken with a sharp knife.
  15. Serve hot or cold.
