Chicken Broth

When I need a little “help” with dinner I will pick up a rotisserie chicken from Sam’s Club. It is $4.98 and we use it for several meals. I usually take a breast and the legs off for dinner. I take the rest of the meat off and use for nachos, quesadillas or salad for dinner the next night. I also use it to make meals for the twins. My favorite part of buying the chicken is using the “carcass” to make chicken broth. I just throw the bones and skin into the pot, add water and a few other ingredients and let it simmer. Use whatever you have on hand to flavor the broth. I use the broth for soup, white chicken chili, or to boil egg noodles in. Hope this helps you save a few dollars in your grocery budget!

Separate your chicken from the bones/skin.

Cover the chicken bones/skin with water in a large pot. Add carrots, celery, onion, garlic and spices to season. Bring to a boil and then allow it to simmer for about 30 minutes.
Allow to cool and transfer to the fridge or freezer until you are ready to use it!

  1. I've heard that adding a Tbsp of vinegar pulls the calcium out of the bones for a more nutritious broth. I tried it last time and it didn't affect the flavor of the broth at all!
