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
