Poached Whole Chicken



  1. Place chicken and stock in a medium saucepot, and cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer gently until chicken is cooked through, about 45 minutes.

  2. Using tongs, transfer chicken to a plate; set aside until cool enough to handle. Pull the meat from the bones in large pieces, discarding skin and bones. Reduce liquid to 2 cups for Chicken Potpie.

    No one is going to read this but I just spent the last six months blowing off job-related steam by cooking. Now I need to say that poached chicken MAKES chicken stock along with the chicken meat that can be used in other delish Martha recipes. Why use chicken stock to make the chicken stock byproduct?
