In the first case, we get a rich broth that compensates for the taste of boiled meat, in the second case - tasteless broth with tough, not boiled chicken. At the end of cooking, add black pepper. Chicken breast out and cool. Add garlic cloves grated on a grater into a saucepan with the broth and remove it from the stove.

We cool down the cooled and present broth. Strain the broth with gelatin. Mix in the same bowl, slightly heated and set aside from the stove. We taste and straighten salt.
