- 4 medium carrots, chopped
- 3 medium tomatoes, chopped
- 2 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped
- 1 head of broccoli, broken into florets
- 1 Tbsp kosher salt
- 2 cups cooked wild rice
- 2 large eggs
- Juice of 1 lemon

- Put the chicken, vegetables, and salt into a large stockpot and cover with water. Bring to a simmer and cook for 2 hours.
- Remove the chicken legs and, when cool enough to handle, remove the skin and bones and shred the meat. Return the meat to the pot along with the wild rice. Season to taste.
