Instructions Checklist
  • If using wings, cut each wing at joints into three pieces. Place chicken pieces in a 10- to 12-quart stockpot. Add the remaining ingredients. Bring to boiling; reduce heat to low. Gently simmer, covered, 8 to 10 hours. (For a gentle simmer, you will see tiny bubbles rising to the surface. You will want to monitor cooking so it does not boil. Gently cooking helps draw out and develop the flavor the broth.)

  • Remove chicken pieces from stock pot. Use a slotted spoon to remove as many vegetables as possible.

  • Strain broth into a large bowl through four layers of 100-percent-cotton cheesecloth placed in a colander. Discard vegetables and seasonings.

  • If using broth while hot, skim off fat. Or chill at least 6 hours; lift off fat with a spoon. If desired, cool chicken; remove meat from bones, discarding bones and skin. Place broth and chicken in separate airtight storage containers. Cover and chill up to 3 days or freeze up to 6 months.
