The length of time you boil chicken depends on the type of chicken cut. If you are boiling chicken with bones, cook 35-50 minutes, depending on how soft you want the chicken and again, what part of the chicken you are boiling.

All you need to boil chicken is a pot, chicken and water. Add the chicken to the pot and bring to a boil. Once it comes to a boil, cover, and let cook on medium for about 90 minutes.
