Chicken with Mustard Sauce and Sautéed Kale Recipe

Sous Vide Chicken Thighs (serves 2)

Turn on your sous vide machine and set your water temperature to 150 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Add chicken thighs, lemon juice, thyme, salt and olive oil to a half-gallon stasher bag. Massage the ingredients inside the bag until the chicken is evenly coated in seasoning. 

Remove as much air from the bag as possible before sealing.

Submerge the chicken into the water bath and let it cook for at least 1.5 hours. If it needs to go longer, it's no problem. The chicken will not over cook. 

Remove the bag from the water, open it, and remove the chicken.

Heat more oil in a skillet on high, and sear thighs for 30 seconds on each side. Then set chicken aside to rest. 


Mustard Sauce

  • 1/2 cup sliced shallots
  • 2 tbsp ghee
  • 1 tbsp lemon thyme leaves
  • 3 tbsp mustard
  • 3 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • Pinch of sea salt

Caramelize shallots with thyme & 2 tablespoons of ghee in a skillet on medium heat.

Stir in vinegar, sautée for one minute, then stir in mustard and sautée for another minute. Season with a pinch of salt and a drip of honey.

Slowly stir in chicken stock - let it simmer and reduce slightly. Remove from heat and blend until smooth.
