    3. 3
      Heat on medium-low heat, covered, until water begins to boil.
    4. 4
      Reduce heat to low and let chicken simmer (do not let water reach a full rolling boil) for about 10-15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

    9. 9

    10. 10
      Remove skin and bones from chicken if applicable (I highly recommend using bonein breasts with skin any time you can as they are so much more flavorful and make a richer stock).
