Total Time: 3-4 Hours
Servings: 3-3 1/2 quarts of soup broth
Place your chicken with skin on or off is your choice. I took the skin off to reduce the fat but believe me there will be plenty left to make the soup nice and flavorful. in your stock pot and cover with water if using a 5 or 5 1/2 qt. stock pot you will cover with 4 quarts of water or a tad more you don't want boil overs or simmerovers.
NOTE: I use a deep stock pot and cover the chicken with more water because of the longer boil/simmer times I use to make this soup because my stock is a true stock and not a broth.
Get your water to the boil then lower to a med/high simmer and as any foam or scum shows up skim it off.
Remember to replace the water from the skimming process with fresh hot water and then if necessary do a last minute skimming of foam/scum if necessary. Now add in your carrots, celery, parsley, dill weed, peppercorns, ginger, parsnips and bay leaves and optional cloves along with 1 Tbsp. of kosher salt and bring water back to a medium/high simmer.
Now put the lid of your pot on the pot and tilt it to allow some steam flow. Reduce heat to medium or medium low and allow the soup to slowly simmer to make your broth for at least 2 to 3 hours. After 90 minutes remove all the veggies and put on plate to cool and then cut them up into manageable pieces. The dill and parsley can be discarded.
After the 2-3 hours of simmering the chicken will be really tender. Turn off the heat and get the chicken out of the pot and put it on a plate or cutting board and allow it to cool and allow the broth to cool as well. Now taste your broth to see if you need to add additional salt. Now carefully strain the broth into another pot through a mesh strainer.
Now when the chicken has cooled down enough remove all the meat from the carcass and break it up into manageable pieces for your soup bowls and then set aside. Then put your broth that you strained into the other pot and strain it again back into the original pot. Now put the carcass of the chicken into the broth and bring it to a boil and then to a medium simmer. Add your additional veggies: 1 parsnip, 1 carrot, 1 celery, a small piece of ginger into the pot with the carcass and simmer the carcass in the broth for 1 to 2 hours. After 90 minutes remove the veggies and cut them up add to the other veggies. This is how you make a really stout chicken soup stock not broth that will be reinforced with the nutrients of the additional veggies and the calcium of the bones and the nutrients of the bone marrow and cartilage of the carcass. Don't forget to skim for scum if any from the carcass.
When done pick out the carcass and discard and then strain the soup into the other pot again and then back again into original pot. Now heat it up again to a simmer. Put your veggies and chicken into a bowl and when hot ladle into your bowl and there you have it Jewish penicillin! Matzo ball optional
