Directions

In large pot simmer chicken in 3-4 quarts of water for about 1 hour. Add water if needed. Remove chicken and set aside. In a separate frying pan, brown hamburger, onions, garlic and sausage until meat is no longer pink. Add to water in chicken stock pot, do not drain grease.

Skim off grease and cook down to desired thickness/consistency.
