If you have never boiled a chicken before and need to learn how here it is! It really looks more scary than it is. We will take you through the step-by-step instructions.

Pouring Water

Covering Chicken

Raw Chicken

First Step: Boiling Chicken

Place a medium sized chicken in a boiling pan. Then pour water into the pot until the chicken is covered. Once you have done this add 2 teaspoons of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder to the chicken. Next place the lid back on top of the pot and set your stove burner to medium low. You should allow the chicken to boil for one hour. If your chicken is not tender continue to cook it for another 30 minutes. 

Deboning Chicken

De-Boning Chicken

Second Step: De-boning The Chicken


Once your chicken is cooked drain (and save) the chicken broth off of the chicken. Then discard the skin and cartilage as you slide the meat off the bones. There is no real proper place to start so just grab a thigh and start puling the meat off.
