Chicken broth

The first rule is not to cook broth and soup from purchased chicken. Since in the process of cooking most of the toxins from the meat get into the water. It is still very important to know that if you do boil such meat, the first water must necessarily be drained after boiling, and then pour clean water over the chicken and cook. This will get rid of most of the harmful substances.

2- Wash well and discard all the insides
