Mmmmm… Chicken Soup makes you feel SO GOOD! I dont know how but it just does!
There’s nothing quite like REAL CHICKEN STOCK!
YOU WILL NEED:
1 Free Range Chicken OR the best quality Chicken you can afford 🙂
1 Red Onion
3 Medium Carrots
6 cloves of Garlic.. peeled or unpeeled doesnt matter
3-4 sticks of Celery
Any fresh herbs you have.. i had a little fresh coriander so i used it up 🙂
No Stock Cubes People’s!!!
1t Raw Salt.. i use Himalayan Pink Salt or Celtic Sea Salt
1t Peppercorns.. whole is good because the vital oils havent been released yet so it’s much fresher
The Amazing Fresh Veg that is going to ‘feed’ your body with all it’s goodness.. i luv veggies 🙂
Chop your veg into medium chunks.
MIS-EN-PLACE… it means ‘everything in its place’… in a kitchen it means get all your prep done first so your not ‘chopping as you go’ 🙂
It’s time to get that beeee-aaa-uuuu-tiful free range chicken cut up and ready to go!
Wash it! Yes.. I wash all my meat.. you’ll be surprised at the cack that’s on it!
First Incision down the side of the breast bone.
Cut into 4 Quarters.. feel confident.. it’s your chicken 🙂
Dont worry if it looks a bit different to mine 🙂
Put your Chicken pieces on top of your veg 🙂
Add the best water you have.
Put it on the heat.
Bring it to the Boil – takes about 10 mins.
Turn down to a simmer – low to medium heat depending on the amount you’re making and the size of your pot.
Simmer for 3-4 hours.. check it every half hour to see how it’s going and skim anything that may rise to the top..
you can simmer on very low for 6 hours if you want!
You need enough water to cover your amount of veg and chicken pieces in your pot.
The messy ‘picking’ process.
I get as much meat as i can off the bones.. and I dont re-use the vegetables but you can if you wish 🙂
The NUTRITIOUS soul-satisfying flavour-ful STOCK…
It’s a ready-made SOUP… ready to go.. just add your veg..
I added some of the shredded chicken and then I thinly sliced some raw broccoli and raw green beans… HEART WARMING! SATISFYING FOR MY SOUL! ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! 🙂
