comment Boiling Chicken Breast (or any meat) before cooking to cook evenly
I understand, rumtscho--it sounds it might have been lost in translation, where by boiling you mean cooking in water more generally. Perhaps poaching is what you have in mind?

Sous vide, on the other hand, is generally a gentler cooking method, but specifically because it is not boiling

comment Boiling Chicken Breast (or any meat) before cooking to cook evenly
What dries out the meat is neither the method nor the time--it is the maximum internal temperature of the meat that affects the final moisture content more than any other factor. Placing meat in boiling water is not a gentle cooking method by any means. Thermal conductivity of water is especially high, and boiling water guarantees the outside be overdone before the inside is past raw.

Clarification on the phenomenon of oxygen dissolved in water; evidently some answerers are confused by the wording.

comment What difference does oxygen content of tea water make?
Tom, you might have misunderstood the idea in the question and answers. We're not talking about losing the oxygen bound in the H2O molecule--we're talking about oxygen gas (O2) dissolved in the water. You may not be considering that gasses can dissolve in liquids; consider for example club soda, in which CO2 is dissolved in water.
