The gentle, even heat of barely simmering water results in juicy, tender meat that is perfect for shredding into a quick soup or making into chicken salad. Here, poached chicken is paired with a simple green sauce based on flavorful staples you may already have on hand: anchovies, parsley, olive oil and lemon zest. If possible, use rinsed salt-packed anchovies (rather than oil packed) for the best flavor.
