- 750–900 g (1 lb 10 oz-2 lb) chicken
- Put everything into a big saucepan, cover generously with water and bring slowly to the boil. Skim off any scum that rises to the surface (you won’t get it all so don’t worry too much).
- Turn the heat down to a simmer and cook, uncovered, for 3 hours, skimming and adding more water every so often. The liquid should reduce to half its original quantity.
