How to make it

  • Rinse chicken and place in large stockpot along with vegetables, bouillon and pepper.
  • Add chicken broth and enough water to cover chicken.
  • Cover pot and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer for one hour.
  • Remove chicken and let cool long enough to handle.
  • Remove meat from bones.
  • Discard fat, skin, bones and cartilage.
  • Save wishbone for good luck later.
  • Cut or shred meat (white meat only) as preferred and return to broth in stockpot.
  • Add remaining ingredients and heat to desired temperature.
  • If you leave the pot sit in the refrigerator overnight, you can easily skim the fat from the top. However, this also removes a lot of the parsley, so I just add some back in.
  • *Can substitute with matzo balls, rice or whatever floats your boat.
