Recipe:

1 Onion
2 Whole chicken legs
1 Tablespoon Curcuma
1 bound Fresh Parsley
3 Carrots
3 Tomatoes
1 bigger piece sellerie root
salt
black pepper
1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
Fresh spinach (200g-400g)
3 coffeecups rice
5 coffeecups water

First peel the onions and just cut it in big pieces and throw it with a little almond oil into a Stockpot. When they are caramelized cut the chicken legs into two pieces (thigh and drumstick) and put them into the Stockpot as well. Give the chicken a lot of heat for a short term on both sides. Then put in water to cover up the chicken.

Cut the carrots, Tomatoes, sellerie root into medium pieces and put it all together into a blender. Try to get it cut as small as possible. Afterwards put it into the Stockpot with the chicken and put enough water in it too slow cook it for several hours.
After a half an hour taste the broth and put in salt and pepper (as much as you like), the curcuma, the parsley and the grated nutmeg. Let the Stock cook on one third of the heat for at least an hour now.
After an hour taste the broth, add salt and pepper again if you like and put in the spinach. Cover up the Stockpot and let it cook 0n minimum heat.

The rice is very easy to do. You always put in two to three cups ( depends on the mass. For example 3 cups rice – 5 cups water but 5 cups rice to 8 cups water) more water than rice into a pot. Put the water into the pot and let it boil! put in a little salt and the the rice. Make the heat onto one third of the power and let it cook for 10 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the rice rest for 10 more minutes. Put in butter if you like (more yummy! 🙂 )

Let the Stockpot cook for at least 3 hours. I cooked it for 7 hours. Taste after a while and maybe put in some tasty spices. I recommend cinammon and chili it goes really good with the tomato and carrot in the broth.

Put in the spinach and the broth first. Take some chicken to the side. Now put some rice into a soup cup press it a little then turn it over on the spinach. knock one or two times on the back to loosen it garnish it a little with cocktail tomatoes and parsley and voila your slow cooked chicken is ready.
