Then I cheat, and often!

I do chicken chunks as well - 2.5hr @ 65C
I bulk buy chicken breasts and trim them to 125g or so: the breasts get frozen, the trimmings get Sous Vide then packed in 100g or so bags for the freezer. Then when I want a quick curry, stir fry, or whatever, it's just defrost and it's ready to go.

It's good for fruit as well - rhubarb works well, as does pineapple.

What kind of bags / vacuum system are you using? I started with ziplock, but they were a pain (and couldn't be reused) so I moved to embossed rolls and an "external" pump machine, then moved to a chamber vacuum with "plain" bags this year. Definitely prefer the chamber vac, but it's going to be a few years before it pays for itself in reduced plastic costs! Laugh | :laugh:
