Poaching Chicken Adds Flavor, Saves Time Later (Poached Chicken & Mushrooms With Umami Rice)

Poaching chicken (sous vide as well) is a great way to do some prep work to save time later, while adding flavor at the same time. I whipped up this recipe with tons of flavor using limited ingredients. It could be seen as a Clean Eating recipe, but it was created to be a Low Residue meal for prep day for a colonoscopy, following all the rules, which also works for people with IBD or similar digestive issues.
