Boiling a chicken, as well as any other meat, depends mainly on its size.
Thus, for the individual parts of the chicken, you will need less boiling time than if you boil a whole chicken.
It only takes 30 minutes to boil chicken drumsticks or chicken wings, chicken fillets or chicken breasts. A whole chicken is usually cooked for about 40-50 minutes or until the meat begins to separate from the bones easily.
Boiling a whole chicken in a pressure cooker will take you up to 30 minutes after it boils and the pot begins to whistle.
Add salt to the chicken's water after 15 minutes from the start of the boiling process. It will become more aromatic if you add to the broth grains of pepper, parsley roots, carrot, onions or spices that you like. Here is our suggestion for boiled chicken.
