Slow Cooker Chicken Bone Broth

This is a recipe for making chicken soup stock. It is the same as the turkey soup recipe except that you use a chicken carcass instead. Since the chicken is smaller you might want to try less water in the mix. I made a batch following this recipe and the broth could have been more flavorful. I'll experiment with it in the future and update this post. I like to make a batch and then add whatever I feel like adding to each serving when I heat it up for a meal. I usually throw in spinach, mushrooms, baby carrots, left over turkey meat, etc. You could also cook up some pasta or rice to add to it.

Chicken carcass - 4- 5lb chicken
1 Onion, sliced
1 Carrot, sliced
2 Stalks celery, cut in pieces
1 Tsp. Ground pepper
6 Cups water

Slow cooker
Storage bowl

  • Break the chicken carcass into large pieces as need to fit in your slow cooker.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients.
  • Cover and cook on low for 24 hours.
  • Set a colander over a large bowl, ideally one that has a cover.
  • Pour the contents of the slow cooker into the colander.
  • The liquid in the bowl is your soup stock.
  • Toss out what remains in the colander.
  • Serve immediately with your favorite additions and/or cover the bowl and refrigerate for later.
