Michael Voltaggio's Crispy Chicken Thighs

Created by Chef Michael Voltaggio, this recipe relies on the cooking technique known as sous vide, a French term meaning "under vacuum." Here, chicken thighs are placed in a vacuum-sealed pouch along with garlic, thyme and butter, then slowly cooked at a low temperature in a circulating water bath. This process seals in the flavors and nutrients, yielding tender, delicious results. Just before serving, the chicken is seared in a fry pan until golden brown and crispy.

You gotta be kidding me !!!

Okay. This was the very first food I ever cooked sous vide. I was going to prepare it for friends for dinner, but thought I should do a trial run first. I bought a package of 6 chicken thighs and prepared without changing anything in the recipe. I figured I'd have leftovers for a couple of lunches at work. I took one bite and immediately knew it was the best chicken I had ever cooked (and I cook a lot). I proceeded to eat all 6 thighs (in all fairness, they were small) in one sitting! I've made a lot of sous vide recipes since then, but this is still one of my favorites.
If you get a sous vide machine, you MUST try scallops too!
Pros: Good Value, Easy, Healthy, Appearance, Impressive, Will Make Again
Cons: Lengthy

Crispy Moist Chicken
April 22, 2012
I do not have the Sous Vide Machine. So I used my old fashioned initiative. I like the plain ingredients. Garlic and Thyme are perfect. I used the dried Thyme as I did not have sprigs available. I boned out the thighs and cooked them in a heavy oven pan with paper and placing a heavy square skillet on top, with temp at 275 degrees for 1 1/2 hrs. I turned thighs once, half way through, and added a little more butter. Also turned temp down to 250 for the last 20 min. Smelled like my Grandmothers kitchen years ago. Thighs were crispy outside and moist inside. Everyone enjoyed with scalloped potatoes and Brussels Sprouts with
Pesto Sauce.
Pros: Easy, Kid-Friendly, Healthy, Appearance, Adaptable, Will Make Again
