SEASON chicken with salt and pepper. Place onions, carrot, celery, garlic and bay leaf into a medium pot. Pour broth over vegetables. Cover, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add chicken and simmer 20 more minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). Remove chicken from poaching liquid and let cool. Reserve 2 ½ cups (625 mL) poaching liquid for mushroom sauce. Slice each breast into 3 pieces and set aside.

BRING a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook broccoli for 3 minutes. Scoop out of the water, plunge into ice water, and drain. Set aside. Repeat with cauliflower, cooking 5 minutes.

MELT butter in a skillet over medium heat. Sauté all vegetables with parsley for 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside and keep warm.

HEAT olive oil and butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Add shallots, garlic and onion. Sauté for 2-3 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes or until the mushrooms are tender. Season with salt, pepper and thyme. Add flour and cook 1 minute. Stir in wine, 2 cups (500 mL) poaching liquid and cream. Season with nutmeg and bring to a simmer. If sauce is too thick add remaining poaching liquid. Place chicken in mushroom sauce and warm through. Serve with vegetables.
