Did this today so I could make fried rice tomorrow. Only did two chicken breasts and put it in my baby slow cooker and omg yum!!!I often buy a bbq chop and shred leftovers for fried rice but the poached chicken was more tender and nowhere near as dry.

I just pour a bottle of ranch dressing over the chicken for some subtle flavour
