Chicken Lentil-Farro Bowl

Directions

  1. In a large pot bring Chicken Bone Broth to boiling. Add farro and lentils. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer 25 to 30 minutes or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet cook fennel, carrots, and leeks in hot oil over medium heat about 5 minutes or until tender. In a bowl stir together parlsey, fennel fronds (if using), and garlic.
  3. Stir sauteed vegetables, chicken, salt, and pepper into pot. Cook and stir until heated through. If desired, float a lemon slice in each bowl. Top servings with parsley mixture.

Chicken Bone Broth

Directions

  1. 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.)
  2. Remove chicken pieces from stock pot. Use a slotted spoon to remove as many vegetables as possible.
  3. Strain broth into a large bowl through four layers of 100-percent-cotton cheesecloth placed in a colander. Discard vegetables and seasonings.
  4. 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.
