Chicken Salad with Ginger-Beet Sauerkraut

I probably have 10 variations of chicken salads that I make, so feel free to switch up the flavors to make a curry chicken, ceasar chicken or even miso chicken salad using this same method

I like to switch up the way I cook my chicken depending on the recipe, but my go to method when I am in a hurry is to poach chicken breasts, or when I am a bit more prepared I will sous vide the chicken breasts the night before and dice it for salad. These two methods result in a juicy tender chicken and require minimal effort.

If you are looking for a more robust flavor try spatchcocking a chicken and roasting it in the oven at 450 for 20 mins then turning the oven down to 400 degrees for an additional 20 mins. This method results in a beautifully golden brown chicken with crispy skin.
