Introduction: Chicken Soup

20 minute prep, 1-to-3 hour simmer, Gluten-free, dairy-free

By simmering along the chicken bones, this recipe brings all the health benefits of bone marrow broth. The bones are taken out at the end.

Step 1: Ingredients

1 pot, preferably an enameled cast iron one for more flavor

5 raw chicken legs
2 carrots

Chop one onion into small cubes.
Heat the pot (enameled cast iron if possible).

Stir until golden.

Add the raw chicken legs, turn them over until golden
Add the other 1 Tsp of oil if needed

Step 4: Add Bay Leaves+salt+pepper

Step 5: Deglaze Twice With White Wine (or Water)

As soon as the chicken legs start sticking to the pot, or the pot bottom starts browning, add 1/2 cup white wine or water to deglaze.
Place a lid until the liquid has evaporated.

Repeat again, until chicken is a nice beige golden color.

Start step 6 while you wait.
