    NancyQ: When I first pulled up this webpage, I couldn't see the complete instructions but when I clicked on the link to "see more comments," the full set of instructions PLUS a link to "lemon vinaigrette" appeared. If clicking on the "see more comments" link doesn't reveal the additional information, search the MS website for "lemon vinaigrette."

    I suggest adding ~1 tablespoon of vinegar (any type) to the water while poaching the chicken. It draws out nutrients from the chicken bones, making for a much more nourishing broth. It won't affect the flavor of the chicken much, if at all. If you have time, add the bones back into the broth after pulling off the meat to cook longer, thus getting even more nutrients. Broth is beautiful!
