Poached chicken is a great ingredient to have in your fridge so a handful of meals are always quick to prepare throughout the week. Add it to salads, wraps, soups, casseroles, quesadillas, the possibilities are endless! Once it is cooked, the chicken can be sliced, cubed, or shredded, depending on how you will use it. The ingredients for this are really quite flexible. I always like to at least add some aromatics and herbs such as garlic, shallots, onions, or leeks and thyme, rosemary, oregano, or bay leaves. It is up to you and what you have on hand in your pantry.

1½ pounds boneless chicken breasts
1 carrots sliced
1 large shallots peeled and quartered
½ lemons sliced
2 cloves garlic smashed
3 sprigs fresh thyme
pinches whole black peppercorns
½ teaspoons kosher salt
