Inspired by a Pampered Chef chicken recipe, this broccoli braid highlights goose breast, crisp vegetables and sharp cheese for perfectly blended flavours. Showcase your favourites by adding your own choice of meat, spices, veggies and type of cheese. That said, goose makes the braid a big hit at the dinner table, even for those who don’t think they like goose!
There are several methods to prepare goose breasts for this recipe. You can use a slow cooker or an Instant Pot. For the latter method, use chicken broth or boullion, enough to cover the goose breasts completely in the Instant Pot. Select the Meat setting and cook on High Pressure for 40 minutes, depending on size of goose. Once cooking time is complete, you can leave the Instant Pot to release the pressure on its own, or push the lever to vent and quickly release the steam. Once the pressure has released and it’s safe, open the Instant Pot and remove the goose breasts. Using two forks, pull the breasts apart, or chop to your liking.
Whichever method you end up using, the end result is worth it.
