How do I keep a whole chicken submerged while boiling?

I'm making a chicken salad recipe from Jacques Pepin's book and he says to keep the chicken fully submerged in a tall thin pot. Since I don't have one I'm using a regular stockpot but I want to keep it submerged somehow. In the book, he says that Danny Kaye used to stuff the cavity with silverware, but I think that sounds weird. Any suggestions?
