Let’s Poach a Chicken

Pieces of chicken on parchment paper.

If you dream of cooking more meals at home, I have a challenge for you: Poach a chicken.

You’ll wind up with a pot of delicious, homemade chicken broth at the end of it, and you’ll have enough chicken for several meals.

It’s easy, delicious, and downright therapeutic.
