Ingredients

  • 1

    (4-pound) whole chicken

  • 1

    bunch green onions, halved

  • 4

    garlic cloves, smashed

  • 3

    -inch piece fresh ginger, whacked open with the flat side of a knife

  • 1

    onion, halved

  • 1

    teaspoon whole white peppercorns

  • 3

    About 3 quarts cold water

Directions

Put the chicken in a large stockpot and place over medium heat. Toss in the green onions, garlic, ginger, onion, and peppercorns. Pour about 3 quarts of cold water into the pot to cover the chicken by 1-inch. Simmer gently for 1 hour, uncovered, skimming off the foam on the surface periodically. Carefully remove the chicken from the pot and pass the stock through a strainer lined with cheesecloth to remove the solids and excess fat. Cool the chicken stock to room temperature before storing in the refrigerator, or chill it down over ice first.
