Homemade Chicken Broth Recipe
Broth is a savory liquid made of water in which bones, meat, fish, or vegetables have been simmered. It can be eaten alone, but it is most commonly used to prepare other dishes, such as soups, gravies, and sauces.
3 chicken breast halves
1 onion, quartered
1 tomato, quartered
1 cup carrots
2 celery stalks
2 cloves garlic
2-3 sprigs thyme
3 bay leaves
fresh herbs like cilantro or parsley (I used cilantro)
Place all ingredients into crock pot and fill with water. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.
When it’s done, throw out all the vegetables, strain the liquid and remove the chicken for other recipes, like chicken salad, or anything that calls for shredded chicken.
If you’re not using the stock right away you can store it in containers and refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze for several months. When the stock is chilled, the fat will rise to the top and harden and you can easily remove it.
To make this on the stove, place all ingredients in a large pot, cover and simmer low for several hours.
