Moist-heat methods are those in which the heat is conducted to the food product by water or water-based liquids such as broth, stock and sauces, or by steam. The method includes Boiling – 212°F (100°C), Simmering – 185°F to 205°F (85°C to 96°C) and Poach – 160°F to 180°F (71°C–82°C).


1. Place the chicken in a stockpot.

2. Pour boiling water till the chicken is covered and heat at (212°F) 100°C to return to a boil.

3. Allow to cool for like 3 to 5 minutes then skim the fat scum.

4. Add the kelp, celery, broccoli, bay leaf, parsley, peppercorn and whole cloves.

5. Simmer at 185°F (85°C) for about 2 hours 30 minutes until the chicken feel tender when pressed on the thigh.

6. Remove the chicken from the liquid, place in another container and cover till needed.

7. Strain the broth. Keep the broth and the filtered separately in appropriate containers and cover them.

Make sure these items are not kept unrefrigerated for up to 1 hour at a stretch. If you are not using the chicken, the filtered and the broth immediately, please cool them on ice-water bath and refrigerate below 41°F (5°C).

8. Peel your potatoes thoroughly with a swivel peeler (get it on Amazon), remove all eyes and cut to size.

9. Place peeled potatoes immediately in a container of cold water to prevent browning.
