Super simple chicken broth

By Erin Wainwright on January 29, 2020 in Food, Recipes

One of my favourite things to eat in winter is soup. I can’t get enough of the stuff. A few years ago my sister told me that her mother-in-law made the greatest soup broth using only a few ingredients. She does hers on the stove for about 4 hours which doesn’t work for me. I needed something that I could make and walk away from, so I adapted the recipe for my slow cooker. I have used this recipe over and over again and it never fails to be amazing.

Equipment

  • slow cooker

Ingredients

  • chicken bones with or without meat Any amount. Can be frozen
  • 1 onion peeled and quartered
  • 2 carrots washed and cut into chunks
  • ¼ cup kosher salt or to taste
  • 16 cups water or whatever amount you need to fill your slow cooker.

Instructions

  • Add all of the ingredients to your slow cooker and cook on low for 24 hours. You can also do this on the stove with a large pot for 4 hours.
  • After 24 hours use a colander and a large bowl and strain the broth through the colander into the bowl. Be careful as it will be quite hot! Put whatever the colander catches into the compost.
  • That's it! You now have a delicious broth to use in soups, pastas and much more! It will stay good for about a week in the fridge or you can portion it and freeze it to use for later.

Notes

If you have a smaller slow cooker and the flavour is a bit intense you can add water to the broth after you strain it.
