There is both a magnificence and a humility about this whole stuffed, poached chicken, served with vegetables in its own soupy juices, and I can’t decide which sentiment is the more appealing. It has been the great middle-class dream ever since the good King Henry IV of Navarre wished that all his subjects might have a chicken in the pot (poule au pot) on every Sunday of the year.
