Step 1: Eggs

Make sure that the eggs are very fresh and have warmed to room temperature, so that they will cook evenly.

Boil the eggs in heavily seasoned water for 5 1/2 minutes, and cool them in ice water.

Remove the shells without breaking the eggs, rinse, and dry on a cloth. Set aside.

Step 2: Chicken

Remove the nerves from the chicken legs, bone them, and prick the meat with a knife. Lay the chicken legs flat in a dish, and brush with the melted chicken fat.

Place in sous-vide bags, and vacuum seal (pressure 2.8, seal 6). Cook for 2 hours in 140°F (60°C) water. Remove and cool over ice.

Open the bags and drain the chicken. Shred the meat, going with the grain.
