Put the chicken in the pot of water, turn on the stove and cook it. If it's not pink or bleeding, it's done. Pull the skin off the chicken breasts, put in pot with water (don't add salt right away as it will toughen the meat) but herbs can be added if you like and cook for approx. 1 hour on medium heat. It's done when you take a fork and pull a little of the meat back and it's not pink. == Start with your chicken in cold water. Some proteins are more soluble in cold water. Bring it to a boil, put on a lid and simmer it 'til done. A bouquet garni may be put in the cold water with the bird, but that depends on how you see your end product.
