How to Make the Easiest Chicken Broth Ever!

Easiest Chicken Broth Ever

The leaves are turning, the air is getting crisp, and you’re craving something warm and nourishing. You want something you can hold in your hands to warm them as you feel the warm goodness traveling to your belly. YOU WANT HOMEMADE CHICKEN SOUP!

We all know that the base to any good, hearty soup is a rich bone broth, but who has the time for that?

You do!

Most of us have spent time in our mother’s or grandmother’s kitchens, watching or helping them stir the pot of bones simmering into a hearty and delicious stock. We all know that most modern families don’t have the time to spend all day in the kitchen, yet want that same homemade warmth of a good broth

Here is the simplest, (almost) hands-off way to make a beautiful broth.

(You can even make it from the remains of your rotisserie chicken!)

Crockpot Bone Broth

  • Place all bones and carcass parts in the largest crockpot you have

  • Add 1 quartered onion, 2-3 stalks celery (the leaves are the best!), and a chopped up carrot (peels on are great)

  • Add as much garlic as you wish (ginger is great too!)

  • Add any other seasonings that sound good to you

  • Cover with water

  • Cook for 8-10 hours on low (or more if you want)

  • Using a sieve, strain out all bits and pieces

  • Let cool.

  • Skim the layer of fat off the top

  • If desired, reheat and add vegetables of choice and meat to make an even heartier dish.
