Chicken Stock going into the Freezer! Once you have had homemade stock, you will NEVER buy the canned or carton stuff again!!
The bones and tissues of many types of animal may make good bone broth. Bone broth also contains other important nutrients, especially minerals, derived from these tissues. This may make bone broth a beneficial dietary supplement for many people.
Nutrition researchers Sally Fallon and Kaayla Daniel of the Weston A. Price Foundation explain that a good bone broth recipe contain minerals in forms that your body can easily absorb: calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur and others. They contain chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine, the compounds sold as pricey supplements to reduce inflammation, arthritis and joint pain.
A study of chicken soup (broth) conducted by the University of Nebraska Medical Center wondered what it was in the soup that made it so beneficial for colds and flu. Researchers found that the amino acids that were produced when making chicken stock reduced inflammation in the respiratory system and improved digestion. Also, research proves it can also boost the immune system and heal disorders like allergies, asthma and arthritis.
So many of my recipes call for Homemade Chicken Stock and this is the recipe I use, adapted from the Cookbook.
WARNING…. This is why you don’t want to EVER BUY chicken Stock AGAIN!

About the Recipe
**Use whatever chicken parts you have. If you can’t afford an organic or free-range whole chicken, simply purchase the chicken necks or whatever part is on sale
**Using vinegar or lemon juice helps extract the minerals out of the bones to make the bone broth so healthy
**Drink this broth as a soup, it is that delicious!
**Don’t discard the fat. It will rise to the top and actually help this stock keep well in fridge.
**Freeze in glass jars or refrigerate for a few weeks.
Makes 2 quarts
- 1 whole chicken (or any chicken parts such as necks, gizzards, etc. and preferably organic or free range)
- 8 cups water
- 1/2 tbsp. salt
- 1 tbsp. garlic powder (or fresh garlic)
- 1 tbsp. onion Powder (or 1 onion chopped)
- 1/2 tbsp. pepper
- 1 tbsp. vinegar (or lemon juice)
- 1 tbsp. poultry seasoning (optional)
- Carrot (Optional. This will make the broth slightly sweet)
Crock Pot Directions: Place all ingredients in Crock Pot. Cook on low for 8-10 hours (or longer). Strain use bones in Bone Broth below.
Instant Pot Directions: Place all ingredients in IP. Set to "Soup" and cook for 120 minutes. All to natural release or instant release if in a hurry. Strain use bones in Bone Broth below.
******Chicken stock is great in recipes and still have some of the nutrients from the bones.******
Remove meat from bones and add back to Crock Pot or Instant Pot. Add same amount of water and seasonings as listed in recipe. Follow directions again for Crock Pot or Instant Pot.
Drain off broth and store in fridge around 1 week. If you pour the hot broth into jars and refrigerate, I have had it last a few weeks because the fat rises to the top to create a seal.
Long term stroage:
Pour into glass jars. Cover with lid and refrigerate. If freezing, open jar to release seal and then freeze. NOT doing this will result in busted jars.
