  • Turn off the heat. Carefully remove the chicken and set aside. Place a large strainer over a very large bowl. Pour the broth through the strainer. Remove the carrots and parsnips to a cutting board and slice into bite-size pieces; set aside. Discard the remaining ingredients in the strainer. When the chicken is cool enough to handle, shred the meat and set aside; discard skin and bones.
