This is a local favorite from the Piedmont of North Carolina. Though many recipes these days use all white meat, older recipes call for white and dark meat. To cook the chicken and make the broth, cooks typically simmer a whole chicken in water until it is almost falling off the bone. The broth is strained and simmered some more as needed to concentrate the flavor. The chicken skin and bones are discarded and the meat finely chopped.
