Recipe type: Soups, Stocks
Serves: 1 1/2 Quarts
Ingredients
Consommé
  • 6 egg whites
  • 1/2 Cup onion, diced
  • 1/2 Cup carrot, diced
  • 1/3 Cup celery, diced
  • 1/4 Cup tomato, diced
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 2 Quarts Chicken stock (recipe follows)
  • salt and pepper to taste
Chicken Stock
  • 6 pounds chicken bones
  • 3 Cups onions, chopped
  • 2 Cups carrots, chopped
  • 2 Cups celery, chopped
  • 1 Cup leeks, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon whole white peppercorns
  • 1 bay leaf
Instructions
Consomme
  1. In medium bowl, whisk together egg whites, onion, carrot, celery and tomato until slightly frothy. Mix in ground chicken.
  2. Place pre-made chicken stock (instructions below) in medium saucepan and whisk egg white mixture into stock. Bring to slow simmer while constantly stirring in one direction with wooden spoon. Stir for about 15 minutes or until raft—a fairly solid layer on top of liquid—begins to form. Reduce to slow simmer and stop stirring.
  3. After raft forms, break small hole in it to allow consomme to break through. Continue to simmer for 45 minutes or until liquid appears crystal clear.
  4. Strain through fine-mesh strainer lined with cheesecloth, being careful not to break raft.
  5. Discard raft and season consomme with salt and pepper.
Chicken Stock
  1. Place all ingredients in large stockpot and fill three-fourths with cold water, about 2 gallons.
  2. Bring to boil, reduce heat to low and slowly simmer for 4 hours, skimming every 30 minutes to remove impurities that rise to surface.
  3. Strain and continue to cook over medium heat for 30 to 45 minutes, or until reduced to about 2 quarts.
