Nutcakes is right on. You don't want to boil chicken breast, it will be too tough. Poaching is the answer.

Put the breast in cold water, bring to a boil, take of the heat and cover for 15 minutes. They don't need longer than this if they're boneless. Cut into one if you're nervous.

I've done by simmering in low sodium chicken stock. If you pierce the chicken with a fork the stock will soak in and keep the beasts moist and tasty.
