As a culinary student, one of the first things we are taught about poaching is DO NOT BOIL! The ideal temperature for poaching is between 150 and 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Boiling will toughen the meat. We are also taught not to use water, as this will leach the flavor from the meat--instead, use a liquid that is more flavorful than the meat; stock, broth, etc. I'm not surprised that people have had to modify this recipe.
