This is a lovely soup for a first course, light and delicate with subtle flavours. Time can be saved by using ready-made broth and pre-cooked chicken, but I expect at some cost to the quality.

Time needed: 3-4 hours cooking time depending on size of chicken + cooling time. Best to cook a day ahead of serving. I allowed 1/2 hour per pound and that worked well.
I was not at all impressed with this dish. The chicken itself was very tender, and if the point was to make it especially for sandwiches or salads, it would do fine. But serving it with a very plain, unseasoned cream sauce made for a virtually tasteless meal. Perhaps good for a person needing a very bland diet for some reason.
The name “Hay” refers to Dr. William Howard Hayes, a Pennsylvania doctor of the late 19th and early 20th century who developed and promoted a diet that came to be known as the Hay System and had many devotees among the foodies of the day.
