      PLEASE NOTE: If you don't have fresh dill sprigs, substitute 1/4 tsp dried dill for each sprig (5 tsp in this recipe). If you don't have fresh thyme, substitute 1/2 tsp dried thyme per sprig (2 1/2 Tbsp in this recipe). That info wasn't easy for me to find!<br/><br/>Delicious! Best chicken broth recipe I have tried yet... no need to search any more. Yum! I used a rotisserrie chicken from Costco. I removed 3 cups of meat before throwing in the chicken. It made about 17 cups of broth after simmering 4 hours. I tried to press as much liquid as possible from the mass of solids. It just has a great flavor. Thanks for a great recipe. (by the way I didn't use parsnips only because I didn't have any on hand... and since it's optional, but I'd love to try it with parsnips).
