Bloody mary flavors provide the base for the sauce in this fun sous vide chicken recipe.
I’m having so much fun with my sous vide appliance! Sous vide is French for ‘under vacuum’. Food is placed in a vacuum-sealed plastic pouch then placed in a water bath at an accurately controlled temperature. It’s cooked at a lower temperature for a longer time. Sounds similar to slow cooking, huh?
The purpose of sous vide is to cook food evenly, ensuring that the inside is properly cooked without overcooking the outside. The best part is that you can pretty much sous vide anything whether it be meat, seafood, vegetables or even fruit. Don’t worry, if you don’t have a sous vide appliance you can make each of these recipes in the slow cooker with some minor adjustments. Yes, I know these don’t all look like bloody mary chicken. That’s because they’re not. I have a couple other mock alcohol sous vide recipes like tequila lime chicken that I will be sharing over the next couple weeks.
This can also be made in the slow cooker. Here’s how you convert it to the slow cooker – throw all the ingredients in, cook HIGH 2-3 or LOW 4-6 or until the chicken is done. It all depends on your slow cooker of course.
- 1.5-2 lbs chicken (any cut)
- 11.5-ounce can V8 vegetable juice
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp celery salt
- ½ onion, chopped
- 2 tbsp blue cheese, crumbled
- Preheat sous vide to 140 degrees.
- Mix sauce together in a small bowl.
- Add chicken evenly amongst 4 vacuum sealable bags.
- Pour sauce evenly into bags.
- Vacuum seal bag all the way closed and add to sous vide water.
- Cook 1-4 hours.
