Sourcing & Selecting

Most grocery markets sell canned chicken broth (stock). It's always nice to make your own if you have time.
You can use beef stock or anchovy stock.
How to Measure: 
A whole chicken may weight anywhere from 4 to 7 lbs (1800 g to 3175g) depending on the size.
If the broth will be used within a day or two, store in a sealed bottle and refrigerate it. For longer term storage, pour the broth into a freeze safe container or bag and freeze it. It should last a few months. The best way to thaw it is to put it in the refrigerator overnight. You can defrost in the microwave a bit then boil again in a pot or leave the container in hot water for a while. However, leaving it out all day in room temperature is not a good idea since it can be spoiled.

Wash a whole chicken thoroughly. Peel and wash 1 onion, 3 green onions, 1 ginger root, 7 cloves of garlic. Cut the vegetables into big chunks.
