Ingredient Checklist


Make it:
  • Cut the stems from the bunch of parsley, reserving the leaves for another use. Place the parsley stems, ginger, garlic, cloves, peppercorns, chicken, carrots, celery, parsnips, onion, and salt in a large stockpot along with 12 cups cold water. Bring to a gentle boil over high heat.

  • Skim the surface with a slotted spoon. Cover; reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 40 to 50 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and is falling away from the bones.

  • 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.

  • Carefully pour the broth back into the pot and bring to boiling over high heat. Add the noodles and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender. Remove pot from heat. Add the chicken, carrots and parsnips, lemon juice, and dill.
