Wine Recommendation: An elegant, mature red Burgundy, such as the 1984 Domaine Robert Ampeau La Piéce Sous le Bois Blagny, which has an earthy edge, complements this refined country-cuisine dish. The 1984 Domaine Robert Ampeau Santenots Volnay is earthier yet.
For Vegetables:
8 cups chicken stock
24 baby carrots, halved lengthwise
24 baby turnips, halved lengthwise
24 thin scallions, cut into 4-inch lengths
1/2 pound assorted small fresh wild mushrooms, such as shiitakes, chanterelles and hon shimeji, shiitake stems removed
For Chicken:
8 boneless chicken breast halves with skin (about 6 ounces each)
salt and freshly ground pepper

FOR VEGETABLES: In a large saucepan, bring the chicken stock to a simmer. Add the carrots and cook over moderate heat until tender, about 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the carrots to a plate. Add the turnips to the stock and cook until tender, about 6 minutes. Add to the plate of carrots. Simmer the scallions for 5 minutes and add them to the plate. Simmer the mushrooms just until tender, about 4 minutes; add to the plate.

FOR CHICKEN: Add the chicken breasts to the simmering stock and poach at a bare simmer until just cooked through, about 12 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate and let rest for 5 minutes. Return the vegetables to the stock to reheat them; season with salt and pepper.

TO SERVE: Remove the skin from the chicken and slice each breast diagonally  inch thick. Divide the vegetables among 8 shallow bowls. Arrange the chicken over the vegetables and add the hot broth.
