Poached Chicken with Fingerling Potatoes and Carrots

Poached Chicken with Fingerling Potatoes and Carrots

Serves 6

Poaching is a moist-heat cooking method that yields deliciously juicy chicken and tender vegetables. This recipe starts with sautéing mushrooms to develop a richly flavored poaching liquid, and finishes by reducing this liquid into a sauce.

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cups (about 5 ounces) thinly sliced mixed mushrooms, such as shiitake and cremini
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup gluten-free, low-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 3 sprigs thyme
  • 1 sprig sage
  • 1 dried bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 pound fingerling potatoes
  • 6 uncooked chicken cutlets
  • 1 (1-pound) bag baby carrots
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley

Preheat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add oil and spread mushrooms in a single layer over bottom of skillet. Let cook for 2 to 3 minutes, without stirring, until browned. Stir once and allow to brown for 2 minutes more. Stir in wine, broth, garlic, thyme, sage, bay leaf and salt. Add potatoes and cover skillet. Bring to a boil, then reduce to just below a simmer. Only a few small bubbles should be seen. Poach until potatoes are fork tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer potatoes to a platter with tongs or a slotted spoon and cover to keep warm.

Bring liquid back to a boil and add chicken. Cover skillet and reduce heat so liquid barely bubbles. Cook for 7 to 10 minutes until chicken is cooked through. Transfer chicken to platter with potatoes and cover. Add carrots to liquid and poach until fork tender, about 8 minutes. Transfer to platter and cover. Bring liquid to a brisk simmer and reduce by half. Remove and discard thyme, sage and bay leaf. To serve, arrange vegetables on plate and top with chicken cutlets. Spoon sauce over, garnish with parsley and serve immediately.
