Boiled Chicken (TAVUK HASLAMA)

This is made about everywhere in Turkey. The leftover chicken can be used to prepare rice and soup. I used chicken from a large package of chicken thighs and legs because dark meat works very well and it is cheaper.

1 chicken (about 3 pounds)
1 onion
1 carrot
5 to 6 stems parsley
Freshly ground pepper
1 bay leaf

Place the chicken in a large pot with the onion, carrot, parsley, pepper and bay leaf. Add 7 cups of water and bring to boil. Remove scum, cover and reduce heat to simmer and continue cooking for 40 to 45 minutes or until chicken is done.

Remove chicken, cool, discard fat, and save broth for a future use.
