  • To make the stock, place all of the ingredients from the first (for the stock) section in a large stockpot. Add just enough water to cover the chicken and let simmer under low heat for approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  • Turn off the heat and remove the chicken from the stock. Strain the chicken broth and if necessary, skim off any extra fat from the top with a ladle.
  • Once the chicken is cool enough to handle with your hands, pull the chicken into large chunks and dispose of the skin and bones.
  • To the stock and chicken chunks, add all the ingredients from the second (for the soup) section of ingredients.
  • Let simmer for another 20 minutes or so until all the ingredients are cooked thoroughly and the flavors infuse together. Remove from heat and enjoy.
