  1. Place all the ingredients in a large pot and cover with the cold water. Bring to a boil and simmer over medium heat for 1 hour and 30 minutes, skimming occasionally.
  2. Remove the chicken from the broth and debone. Set the meat aside and discard the bones, vegetables and herbs. Strain the broth through a sieve. Allow to cool, then place the broth in the refrigerator to allow the fat to rise to the surface. Degrease the chilled broth before using or freezing.

  1. Great recipe. I’m wondering however why the skin and fat needs to be removed from the chicken - and if there’s anything one can do with the chicken skin and fat so as to not throw it away. Thank you
