    Chef #529038's Note:

    This is an original recipe by Jeff Smith, from the cookbook "The Frugal Gourmet". Use for Chicken with Leeks and Cream recipe, as well as other recipes that call for cooked chicken. Have also used method for boneless chicken thighs with great results. In this recipe we do not actually boil the bird at all but rather place it in boiling water and then leave it alone. Please read the instructions carefully. This dish is so simple and so delicious that you will think the instructions are incorrect.

    1. 1
      Fill a large kettle with water, and bring to a boil. (An 8 quart pot two-thirds filled with water works great for a 2 1/2 - 3 pound bird). When the water boils, place the whole cleaned chicken into it. When the water stops boiling, take the chicken out. Cover the pot, and when the water again boils, place the chicken back in the pot. Cover the pot, and turn off the heat. Leave the chicken in the pot and the pot on the burner. After 1 hour the chicken is done. Remove and cool.
    2. 2
      You can debone this chicken in very little time. If you are on a low-salt/low-fat diet, be sure to remove the skin. Save the juices that flow from the bird when deboning because this liquid contains a great deal of natural gelatin and will help keep the bird moist if you should decide to store the meat in the refridgerator. The chicken is ready to serve or use.

      This chicken was awesome ! It was very tender and had great chicken flavor. I was skeptical about this unconventional cooking method, but I am a true believer. I will use this recipe for all cooked chicken recipes.
