Chicken & Broth:

– Add chicken and broth to stockpot below
– Discard scraps, or continue to cook bones for more broth by adding water, herbs & ACV
 

 

Bringing the Soup together:

– Add EVOO to bottom of separate stockpot.
– Add in onion & garlic for a few minutes on medium.
– 1T each of: oregano, thyme, cumin, sea salt, pepper
