  1. Combine chicken and water in large pot. Bring to a boil. Skimm off any scum that rises to the top.
  2. Reduce heat to med/low; cover and simmer 15 minutes.
  3. Add onion, salt, thyme, bay leaf, garlic and peppercorns. Simmer covered for additional 35 to 45 minutes or until chicken falls off the bone.
  4. Remove chicken, bay leaf and peppercorns from broth; cool.
  5. Remove chicken from bones; cut into bite size pieces.
  6. Skim fat from broth. You may want to put broth into the fridge for several hours or overnight. It is easier to remove the fat.
  7. Bring broth to a boil. Stir in chicken pieces, celery, carrots and rice - I add a little more onion too. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until veggies/rice are tender. I add the peas for the last 10 minutes. If you are using noodles instead of rice, add uncooked noodles at this stage.
  8. Add parsley or green onion if desired.
