This recipe unfortunately was a huge failure. I tried again, this time with bacon and the result was marvellous: see Sous vide bacon wrapped chicken filled with garlic and cheese

Chef's notes

This was rather disappointing in the end and also rather dry in comparison with meat usually cooked sous vide. The chicken breasts I used had been previously frozen, I wonder if that might have made a subtle difference.

I will persist with this and make some changes, a little sherry might make a difference.
