  • carrots
  • celery
  • Mixed fresh herbs; oregano, thyme, rosemary, sage...

  • Toss in the fresh parsley and give it a good stir. You may also add a nice squeeze of fresh lemon.
  • Adjust salt and pepper to your taste.
  • Allow the soup to cool completely. This soup is best the next day.

Notes

*To make homemade chicken broth: Place washed chicken into pot and barely cover with water. Add 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and allow the chicken to soak for 1 hour. Turn on heat and bring to a boil. Once it boils, begin skimming all the white foam off – these are the impurities. Once it’s clean, reduce heat to low-medium and add any amount of onion, carrots, and celery along with bay leaf and any fresh herbs you like. Put lid on pot half-way and allow the whole chicken and all the goodies to cook for about 2-3 hours. Check the chicken after 2 hours to see if its done. The internal temp is 165 F  without the thermometer touching any bones).  Once chicken is done, remove it from the pot and allow to cool slightly. Remove the chicken from the bones.  If you like, you can toss the bones back into the pot for the last hour of cooking.  Cut or shred both white and dark meat for the soup. Save the rest for other meals. After 3 hours, strain the broth to remove all the veggies and herbs – toss them. Allow the broth to cool if you plan on freezing it or you may continue to make the soup at this point. Be careful - it is HOT!
Can also use Black Garlic Ghee, Sriracha Ghee, Turmeric + Black Pepper Ghee and Heirloom Salt + Pepper Ghee in place of Original Ghee.

  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp. dried chives

  • Melt the ghee in a clean, narrow jar in the microwave. Using a food injector*, pull the melted ghee into the tube with the plunger. Insert it under the chicken skin at the breasts and thighs. Insert in ONE spot and move the injector around to spread the ghee under the skin without puncturing more holes. Pull the injector out and insert in the other breast. Repeat with the thigh area.
  • Baste the outside of the chicken with a little ghee and sprinkle with paprika and chives.
  • Reduce oven temp to 375F and bake chicken for 20 minutes. Every 15 minutes baste the chicken with pan drippings till it has reached an internal temperature of 165F** at the thickest part of the bird.
  • Remove from oven and allow chicken to rest for 15 mins before serving.

Notes

* Find an injector at grocery stores or amazon.com
