Spring Poached Chicken


Jamie Oliver

To be honest, I think this has got to be one of my favourite meals, but at the same time none of my friends would even think about having poached chicken for dinner. It sounds boring, doesn't seem like much fun and it might even sound a bit healthy (which it is!). But do you know what, this is one of the most truly brilliant meals. People I've fed it to have been gobsmacked and I'm sure you will be too. So please, trust me, I won't stitch you up. Have a go! I love this... Next time...
