Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

You need to lower the heat so the chicken won't boil so fast and skim the foam off with a tea strainer before you add the vegetables.

I can cut 2 legs 2 thighs 2 wings 2 breasts and if I cut it correctly 1 pulley bone. 10 good pieces is a trick.

You are correct! Please excuse our typo. A whole chicken can only be cut into 8 pieces! We have adjusted the recipe accordingly. Thanks for pointing this out.
