While growing up, I always thought of chicken and dumplings as a rustic farm dish. Perhaps it was just the lack of euphony in the word dumpling—phonics have ruined the reputation of more than one dish. Yet the balance of a perfectly poached bird napped in a mushroom sauce and garnished with savory, fresh herb pillows is worthy of the most elegant menus.
