Chicken Broth

Share This Post

This is the quick and easy way to make your own chicken broth at home. It’s great – especially for those of us who simply don’t have spare time to spend cooking! By using a crock pot, it’s easy to do, with little monitoring involved.

Thoroughly wash a whole chicken, optionally removing the neck and wings and cutting it into small pieces. Using a frozen chicken is preferred, but this may prevent cutting it up. Put the whole chicken into the crock pot and add the following:

  • Filtered water so that it is less than 6 inches from the top of the pot
  • 2 tablespoons of vinegar (this will help take the nutrients from the bone into the broth)
  • 1 large chopped onion
  • 2 peeled carrots
  • 3 celery sticks
  • A bunch of parsley
  • Garlic (optional)

Cook all day and all night on the lowest setting. The longer you cook your chicken broth, the thicker and more gelatinous it will be – this is what you want! After cooking it, take the meat off of the chicken for use in soup or other meals. If you use a frozen chicken, the meat will not get overcooked.Strain the broth from all bone and parts of the chicken. Put the broth in a covered container in the refrigerator for a day, so the fat will rise to the top. The next day, scoop off the fat off and you’ll have a delicious, nutritious chicken broth left. You might want to add sea salt to the broth for taste.
