1. In a stockpot, bring 3 quarts of water to a boil. Add the chicken parts and boil for 1 minute. Pour off the water and run cold water over the chicken; drain well.
2. Return the chicken to the stockpot. Add 3 quarts of cold water and the ginger, garlic, green onions, onions and celery. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to moderately low, cover partially and simmer for 4 hours.
