So here's mine.
Start with a large pot, filled with filtered or bottled water.
Be sure to rinse off the chicken and remove that bag of yuk from the cavity.
Then add chopped celery, onions, garlic, carrots, tomatos and parsley.
I bring the whole mess to a boil and let it simmer for 2 - 4 hours (depending on what else I might be doing. And this is where I differ from Mom and everyone else. I strain all the liquid out and cool off the chicken (which is falling apart at this point) and let it all cool off. I put the cleaned off pieces of chicken and some of the vegetable in a blender. I try hard to make it a crumbly consistency but usually I go to far and it ends up a paste. Dump it all back in the broth and stir, smashing the clumps against the side of the pot.
