Homemade Chicken Bone Broth
Anyone else love bone broth?! It’s healthy and delicious. We usually just use it for broth in soups, but you can also just sip on it. Here’s how I make mine.
(1) leftover chicken, or other carcass (take all the meat off). Throw the bones in a big pot.
(2) cover bones with water
(3) add a few Tablespoons apple cider vinegar or lemon juice (something acidic)
(4) bring to boil
(5) reduce to simmer (low heat) and simmer for 4-24 hours (depends on how much time I’ve got…or how long I want the house to smell delicious! Ha!) Keep in mind, the longer you’re able to let it simmer, the better the flavor will be!
(6) scoop out big bones
(7) strain broth for small pieces
(8) I usually freeze mine or keep in the fridge to use for a few days. You can add whatever seasonings you want.
When cooking with it, I usually do add some chicken seasoning for more flavor if I’m only able to cook it for a few hours, but if I’m making a soup it will already have lots of flavor. The best is making homemade chicken and dumplings!
Note: you can also make this in a crockpot! Just add your carcass and vinegar, fill with water to just below the brim and cook on low for about 12-24 hours! It’s an easy way to make your house smell wonderful while making some delicious broth!
