How to make the chicken soup
I place the entire chicken (cleaned from the internal organs) in a pot with 2-3 liters of cold water and a pinch of salt & I start cooking it on a middle gas pit.
While chicken is being boiled I peel, wash and cut vegetables. I add them to the chicken when the meat is already boiled (after an hour or so) and I continue to boil. At the same time I also add the bay leaves, allspice and black pepper. I let it all cook for 2-4 hours on the smallest gas pit. The longer it cooks the better quality bouillon it is.
Afterwards, I remove chicken gently. It falls apart because the nutrients from joints and other connective tissues are well dissolved in the bouillon. I clean the chicken from bones and skin and place the cleaned meat back to the soup.
I serve it hot with fresh green parsley leaves and rice noodles. It is very healthy to drink as well.
I wish you Happy & Healthy cooking!
