  • Place bowl with chicken onto a rack fitted in a large pot, and add enough hot water to pot to come about halfway up sides of bowl. Add enough cold water to bowl to cover chicken.

  • Cover pot, and bring water to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-high. Simmer until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of thigh (avoiding bone) registers 165 degrees, about 1 hour, adding more water to pot as needed to maintain water level.

  • Transfer chicken to a cutting board, and set broth aside. Cut chicken into 6 pieces. Divide chicken and broth among bowls. Serve with sauces and mustard.
