the heat and cover the opt. Cook, stirring frequently, over Medium-High,
add the chicken and cook until the chicken flesh is browned on both sides,
about 5 minutes. Pour in the chicken broth an water. Add the celery and bay
leaves, and bring to a boi. Boil for 5 minutes. As foam accumulates, skim
it off and discard. Lower the heat to simmer and add the thyme. Simmer,
covered for 2 hours. Add water as necessary to keep the chicken covered
with liquid. Remove the pot from the heat. Remove the chicken and allow to
cool, then pick the meat from the bones and reserve for another use. Strain
the stock and discard the vegetables and bay leaves. Cool to room
temperature. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Lift any congealed fat from
the stock and discard. Stor for 2-3 days in the refrigerator or freeze for
longer storage. Makes 20-24 cups.
