It’s been a very long time since I served whole chicken pieces without first deboning. When my kids were young I learned that it was much easier to debone while I was still cooking, than to do it after serving. And I was more likely to eat while the food was still warm. Thus, most of my chicken dish recipes use only the meat of a chicken, not the whole pieces.

For the chicken paprika dish, I cut up a 6 lb. chicken into a large pot, covered with water and cooked the chicken until it was done. 6 lbs turned out to be way more than I needed, so I only used half of the breast and one thigh, deboned, along with broth created by the cooked chicken.
