Default How long do you boil chicken for to make chicken soup?

What heat settings and time? One of my favorite meals is simply rice + chicken soup, the chicken soup simply being a whole chicken + water + salt + big pot.

here is another one, chinese herb type

http://altmedicine.about.com/cs/trea...icken_Soup.htm

Quote:
Ingredients:

* 1 whole chicken, small- to medium-size
* short-grain/sticky/Japanese sushi rice, enough to fill the chicken cavity
* 5 to 7 cloves of garlic, chopped
* 1/2 inch piece of ginger, chopped finely
* 1 bay leaf
* sea salt, to taste
* dark roasted sesame oil, to taste (garnish)
* green onion, sliced into fine threads (garnish)
* small Thai chili peppers, chopped very finely (garnish)
* optional: 2 medium sticks of dried astragalus root

1. Rinse the chicken thoroughly and trim any excess skin and fat.

2. Fill the entire chicken cavity with rice. Place the chicken inside a covered stockpot and fill the pot with water so that the waterline is approximately 2 inches above the top of the chicken.

3. Place the bay leaf and sea salt in the stockpot. Bring to a boil, then turn down to medium - low so that the water is boiling gently.

Add the astragalus, ginger, and garlic and continue cooking for 2 hours or until the chicken and rice are well-cooked.

To serve an individual serving, cut a piece of chicken and place it in a bowl with some of the rice and soup.

Garnish with green onion threads, Thai chilis (extremely spicy!), and a few drops of dark sesame oil. Enjoy!

be careful, if you boil it too long it it gets that marrow taste in the soup. I hate that chicken marrow taste, it reminds me of wood.
