Pound Chicken

2. Place a sheet of waxed paper over chicken pieces and pound lightly to an even thickness.

3. Bring 8 cups water, bay leaves, and peppercorns to barely a simmer over medium heat in a large saute pan. Add chicken and cook for 10 to 12 minutes, keeping temperature moderate so only a few bubbles appear around chicken.
