How to make it
- Place all ingredients in a 4 - 5 quart saucepan. Fill saucepan with water to 1" from the top.
- -Cover and simmer over low heat for 6 - 8 hours.
- -Using a fine sieve, drain broth into a bowl or large measuring cup.
- -If there was any remaining meat on the chicken, separate the meat from the fat and bones; reserve the meat for a later use; discard bones/fat. (I freeze my chicken in freezer-type plastic zip-top bags.)
- -If you're not using the broth immediately, portion into freezer-type plastic zip-top bags and freeze. (I freeze mine in 2 cup portions, but 1 cup bags may be more practical for you.)
- Notes: This broth yields a more flavorful result than any canned chicken broth. You may be able to eliminate the salt and most seasonings in a recipe in which you use this broth.
