Ingredients

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

3 cloves garlic, crushed

3 red onions, coarsely chopped

3 carrots, coarsely chopped

3 ribs celery, coarsely chopped

Big pinch sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 whole organic chicken, cut in pieces

1 pint organic chicken bones

1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley

1/3 cup celery leaves

1 bay leaf

1 sprig fresh thyme

1 sprig fresh tarragon

5 whole black peppercorns

Directions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add the crushed garlic cloves and saute for 2 minutes, until garlic is golden. Add the onions, carrots, and celery. Season the vegetables with sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Saute for about 8 minutes. Cut the organic chicken and chicken bones into pieces. Really hack into it so that the bones and marrow are exposed. Add the chicken pieces and pint of chicken bones to the pot. Fill the pot with water until it just covers all the chicken, and bring to a boil. Tie the parsley, celery leaves, bay leaf, thyme, and tarragon into a bouquet using butcher's twine or kitchen twine. Add the bouquet to the pot along with the black peppercorns. Once the broth has begun to boil, bring the heat down to medium-low. Partially cover, and let the broth simmer for 2 to 3 hours. Strain the chicken broth through cheesecloth. Hand-pick the good chicken meat and set it aside.

Cook’s Note

The good chicken meat can be used for chicken soup or another recipe. Refrigerate the broth overnight. Slip a sharp knife around the edges of solidified chicken fat and discard.
