بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 933/876/SN=8/1438)

If the water is extra hot and the chicken is put inside it equal to a time that the inner impurity is absorbed in the meat, then this practice is not lawful according to Shariah as in such a case the meat will be impure and there is no way to clean it.
