    Chef JTwombly's Note:

    This is something I've worked on for a few years, and finally mastered this past week! It may look complicated but once you've done it a few times, it takes no time at all!

    My Private Note


    Serves: 22



    Units: US | Metric


    • 1 raw chicken carcasses or 1 raw turkey carcass, with as much skin removed as possible
    • 30 cups water (or enough water to cover the body)
    • 1/4 cup salt (I use coarse salt, but whatever is on hand is good)

    Add Ins


    1. 1
      Boil carcass in pot large enough to hold it and with enough water to cover it. Season with the 1/4 cup salt prior to boiling. Let boil for up to 3 hours, checking water levels occasionally.
    2. 2
      Use slotted spoon to remove all pieces of carcass (careful, it will have separated into smaller pieces).
    3. 3
      Strain into another container with cheesecloth to catch all the meat floating in the water, as well as the residual fat from the body.
    4. 4
      Allow the bones to cool to touch to remove the remaining meat for the soup.
    5. 5
      Place the broth back into the now cleaned pot (washing in between is key here) with the meat from the carcass. Stir occasionally.
    6. 6
      Put back onto the stove to boil. Add the cut thigh meat after the water boils. Stir occasionally.
    7. 7
      Add the rice and pasta, let come to a boil again. Stir occasionally (see a pattern here? :D).
    8. 8
      Once the rice and pasta begin to swell, add veggies (you know what to do here :D).
    9. 9
      Season to taste with salt.
    10. 10
      Serve to those you love (especially yourself!).
