1-1.2 kg chicken bits with bones and skin

4 large potatoes, peeled and quartered

2 medium-sized tomatoes, quartered

  • Put all ingredients into a large pot and fill with cold tap water until just covered. Bring to a boil on high heat and skim off any foam that floats on the surface Reduce the heat to low and simmer uncovered for about 15 minutes, skimming off any additional foam, then cover and continue simmering for about 1 hour/45 minutes. Adjust the seasoning and serve hot with fresh pita bread or - like now during Passover - with matzos.
