Boil the whole chicken in a large pot with water covering the chicken. Sprinkle with 1 t. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Boil for 2 hours on medium heat, or until chicken is tender. Drain the broth, then set broth aside to cook noodles in later.

Remove just the meat from the chicken, and dispose of the skin, bones, and cartilage.
