Poached Chicken Breast

Chef's notes:

Poaching is a good, neutral way to cook a chicken breast. It contributes only a small amount of flavor to the meat during the cooking process, but it cooks the meat to the precise temperature without going over. The result is tender, juicy, perfectly cooked meat that can be used in many different applications: sandwiches, salads, soups, etc., or you can just cut it up and serve it with your favorite sauce for a healthy, low-fat, protein-filled dinner. You may not have noticed, but I love mushroom sauce, so I’ve included a recipe for that as well.
