    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place chicken and water in stockpot, making sure water level covers chicken.
    2. 2
      Bring to a boil over med-high heat, then reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes, skimming off foam, until it clears (try not to agitate too much from the bottom at this point).
    3. 3
      Add onions, carrots, celery, and bouquet garni sachet, and simmer uncovered for approximately 3 hours, maintaining water level to cover chicken.
    4. 4
      At the end of cooking time, strain mixture through a sieve (don't press the vegetables or mixture will cloud) into a clean pot and allow to cool.
    5. 5
      Refrigerate, then remove fat before using, if desired (it should rise to the top).
    6. 6
      You can freeze any you don't want to use right away at this point, or use immediately (I put my extra into ice-cube trays then into plastic bags once it has frozen).
