How to make Sous-vide Chicken Bacon Rolls using Multo® by CookingPal®?

Sous Vide Chicken Bacon Rolls

1. Prepare the chicken breast.

Begin this recipe by slicing your chicken into strips that you will then wrap in the bacon. 

It is important to make sure your chicken is fully thawed if you’re using frozen chicken. Thawing chicken properly before cooking will result in evenly cooked chicken, whereas cooking partially frozen chicken could result in undercooked chicken that could have harmful bacteria. 

This recipe calls for chicken breast which is a great source of lean protein and essential vitamins and minerals. Chicken breast is the perfect choice for those who want low-fat, high-protein meals. It is also a great option for those with high cholesterol or high blood pressure due to its low-fat content.

2. Cook the chicken.

Place the chicken in the double-lock bag for sous vide cooking, which is the process of boiling items in air-tight bags until fully cooked. Sous vide cooking is an easy method of cooking used to keep the natural juices and flavors of the bagged contents. You also don’t have to monitor cooking temperatures using this method of cooking, as the water remains at the precise temperature needed for complete cooking. 

It’s important to remove any excess air from the bag before placing it in the water bath. Sous vide cooking requires the bag to be completely immersed in the water for full cooking, and extra air would cause the bag to float to the top of the pan.

Sous vide cooking is a great way to cook other types of meat as well. Larger cuts of beef, steak, seafood, lamb, and pork all cook nicely and retain their natural flavors with this method of cooking.

3. Pan-fry and enjoy.

Pan-fry the chicken bacon rolls as the final step to achieve a crispy outer coating. Serve with your favorite starch (e.g. mashed potatoes, rice) for a filling meal. For those looking to keep their diets low-carb, pair these rolls with vegetable sides such as cauliflower rice, steamed greens, or sautéed greens.

Tips and Tricks

  • Can I freeze bacon? 

    Bacon can be frozen for up to a month. However, be mindful of how you freeze it. If you intend to thaw and use the whole package at one time, you can freeze the unopened package by wrapping it tightly in heavy-duty foil or freezer wrap to maintain its freshness. If you plan to only use a few pieces at a time, it’s best to roll the bacon strips and place them in a freezer bag for individual thawing. Unopened bacon can be frozen for up to 8 months.

  • How can I tell if bacon is bad? How long is bacon good after opening? 

    Since bacon is a cured meat, it has enough preservatives in it to last a while in your fridge and freezer. Unopened bacon can last for up to 6 months in the fridge and up to 8 months in the freezer. Packages that have been opened can last up to a week in the fridge and for 2-3 weeks in the freezer.

  • How can bacon fit into different diets (e.g. keto, gluten-free)?

    Depending on the type of bacon you purchase, it can be suitable for different diets. Most bacon is keto-friendly since it is a type of low-carb meat. For gluten-free diets, be sure to read the bacon packaging to see if it has gluten in it or not. This popular breakfast meat not only tastes great wrapped around chicken, it also makes for an interesting addition to desserts, dips, and salads.

  • Can you wrap other types of meat in bacon?

    There are other types of meat you can wrap in bacon for a similar eating experience. Some examples are turkey, pork tenderloin, sausage, and scallops. You can even substitute chicken thighs in this recipe if you prefer dark-meat chicken.

    Cook these bacon chicken rolls for special occasions or casual family dinners. They are easy to make, packed with natural juices and flavors, and present well too. Serve with your favorite sides and indulge your taste buds in a savory meal. Not only does this dish taste delicious, it’s also healthy and can be adapted to suit different dietary needs.
