Ingredients

  • 1 small whole chicken, about 3 pounds

  • Sea salt

  • Ground black pepper

  • 1 onion, halved and sliced

  • 4 celery ribs, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces

  • 2 cloves of garlic

  • 3 carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces

  • 2 yellow beets, peeled, halved if small, quartered if big

  • 8 small potatoes, scrubbed

  • 8 cups low-sodium chicken broth

  • 8 sprigs parsley

  • 2 bay leaves

Directions

Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper on all sides, including inside the cavity. Add chicken, onion, celery, garlic, carrots, beets and potatoes to a Dutch oven or stockpot large enough to hold the chicken and vegetables together. Add broth, parsley and bay leaves. Bring to a simmer and cook, making sure the chicken is submerged (add more water if needed). Cook for about 50 minutes, at a very gentle simmer, uncovered, until chicken is tender and juices run clear when pierced with a fork. Remove chicken from pot. Check that potatoes and beets are tender. When ready to serve, carve chicken into pieces. Serve with vegetables and broth.
