Put chicken in the pot generously cover chicken with water but not to the top. Bring chicken to a boil then let simmer while you prepare vegetables as stated in recipe. Once you are done preparing vegetables bring chicken up to a boil for about 5 minutes take chicken out of pot and then add vegetables bring to a boil then down to a simmer while you debone chicken and cut into smaller pieces including skin. Taste stock to see if it is chickeny enough for you if not add some chicken crystals to your liking now add the cut up chicken and simmer until dinner time. Mine usually simmers from 2-4 hours if not longer. Boil Kluski noodles in own pot just before serving so everyone can add their own.
