Under the pasta insert in your stock pot, put halved onions, chopped carrots and celery into the steaming water. Put your chicken (whole or parts - be sure to slit to the leg and wing joints for even cooking) in the pasta insert and steam for a half hour or so, until the meat reads 160 degrees F. Lift the insert out, put the chicken on a baking sheet and finish crisping the skin in a 350-degree oven. Season the broth left in the stock pot, add some of the chicken, and enjoy!
I weigh my pasta dry and count the noodles to know my portion size. Once counted, I then add them to the pot with the rest of the noodles I am making for dinner. When I am ready to dish up, I count out the same number of noodles to make sure I have the correct portion size.
This prevents me from having to cook up two separate pots of pasta.
