1 piece leek (+/- 20 cm.)

Take the chicken or chicken legs, rinse well with cold water. For a very thin bouillon, remove the skin. The bouillon will be tastier and fatter when you don’t remove the skin.
Put the chicken in a large pan, add the water and bring to a boil. Add meanwhile all other ingredients. Simmer on a very low flame for at least 3 hours.
Remove the chicken and set aside and leave to cool. Remove the meat from the bones.
Filter the bouillon.

You can use this bouillon to prepare a very tasty chicken soup, but you can also use it as a basis for other kinds of soup or sauce or to boil your rice in it. There are many opportunities.
Freezes very well.
