It will take almost 2 hours with the lid on to cook a chicken that large.  You can add celery stalks and carrotts cut in half to give it good flavor for broth..some people add onion I think it makes it taste bitter.....cover with water enough to cover the top......cook on Med high.....you can tell with a fork it is cooked enough.
