    Cook’s tip
    It’s easy to double up and make this recipe for four, in which case it’s well worth poaching a whole chicken with an onion, carrot, stick of celery (all cut into chunks) and a couple of bay leaves, 6-8 black peppercorns and a sprig of fresh thyme. Cover with cold water and poach gently for 1 hour or longer if needed until thoroughly cooked, the juices run clear and there is no pink meat. Keep the liquid for stock after removing the chicken.
