Just an amusing note about cooking chicken.
My dad was raised on a farm, and in the summer, they had no refrigeration, so they ate a lot of chicken.
I'm talkin' go out and catch the chicken, wring it's neck, and clean. It was Daddy's job to clean the chickens and remove the feathers. He always hated what he called "grasshopper chickens" (I think they call them free range now, and charge a whole lot more for them),
Anytime he came in my door and I had a chicken in the pot, he would just turn around and leave. He couldn't stand the smell.
He eventually got to the point where he'd eat one of my fried chicken breasts with chicken gravy and mashed potatoes. It was really the gravy he loved.
By the way, the method of cooking chicken you all are talking about is called poaching. The chicken will have more flavor if you season the poaching liquid.
