Sous Vide Chicken Salad Véronique

Sous Vide Chicken Salad Véronique is probably the best chicken salad that you’ll ever have. What makes it so good is the perfectly cooked chicken and the addition of grapes and fresh tarragon to an otherwise so-so chicken salad. Once you taste it, you’ll never look back.
