Servings 4 servings


  • 2 ½ pounds of chicken parts and gizzards of your choice 2 feet, neck, liver, heart, wings, legs
  • 12 cups of water
  • 2 large carrots peeled and cut into pieces
  • 1 medium onion peeled and cut into pieces
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • Salt and pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ cup cilantro
  • 1 celery stick
  • Thyme
  • Lime to serve


  • Place the chicken parts in a large container with ice water and soak them for about 1 hour. This will help to clean up the blood and bad stuff from the chicken parts.
  • Remove the chicken parts from the ice water and discard the water. Place the chicken in a large pot and add the water. Bring to a boil, skimming off any foam from the top.
  • Reduce the heat to low and add all the remaining ingredients. Cover and simmer for about 4 hours.
  • Remove from the heat and remove the chicken parts that you want to eat and set them aside. Strain the broth through a fine sieve & return to the broth the chicken parts that you would like to eat. Serve the soup hot in small cups with lime juice.
  • Note: This can be use as chicken broth to make other dishes and it can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze up to 6 months, so make a big batch
