1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast
2-3 strips lemon zest, removed with a vegetable peeler
1 fresh or dried bay leaf
2. Fill the pan with water to cover the chicken by about 1 1/2 inches.
3. Add the lemon zest and bay leaf, and set the pan over medium heat. Bring the water to a simmer, then reduce the heat so the water barely bubbles, partially cover, and cook until the meat is firm and releases clear juices when pierced with a fork, about 10 minutes.
4. Remove the chicken from the water and transfer it to a towel-lined plate to drain. Serve warm or let cool completely. Store in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
