Chef Tips

Bouquet garni, generally includes sage, parsley, carrot, and celery that is tied in a bundle with butcher’s twine. You may use any type of herbs or vegetables that you want for different flavors.

You can also use skinless chicken breasts, thighs and drumsticks if you prefer, and save the meat for another use after removing from the broth.
