  • pounds chicken breast, thighs or drumsticks
  • ¾ cup avocado oil
  • 6 medium potatoes cubed in large pieces
  • 2 medium potatoes cubed in small pieces
  • 12 cups water
  • 15 cloves garlic
  • ½ cup dried mint
  • 6 lemons juiced
  • salt and black pepper to taste


  • In a small bowl mix together the mint, lemon, and minced garlic. Set aside.
  • In a large pot add the ¾ cup oil, add largely cubed potatoes and sauté them on medium-high until golden brown. Remove them and set aside.
  • In the same pot with the remaining oil in it, add your chicken of choice, season on each side with salt and black pepper. Sear on medium high heat for about 4 minutes on each side.
  • Add 12 cups of water to the pot of seared chicken, add the 2 small cubed potatoes.  Pour in half of the lemon and mint mix we have set aside. Bring pot to a boil then on on low heat for 35-40 minutes.  Mash down the small potatoes to thicken up the broth.
