6 Hour Soulful Chicken Bone Broth

The comfort of broths and soups are very much loved in my home and in light of my very first recipe-based blog post, I have decided to go with a simple, budget friendly yet essential recipe that you could pocket as a kitchen staple.

In the recent weeks, I have spent a significant amount of time experimenting on broth recipes after being inspired by Jennifer McGruther’s – Broth and Stocks from the Nourished Kitchen (I highly recommend the book for broth enthusiast).

“In preparing homemade broths, you participate in the tradition of kitchen wisdom that has nourished the bodies and satisfied the bellies of generations upon generations of healthy people worldwide. It is a simple yet powerful practice”

Chicken Bone Broth

This wholesome chicken broth recipe is infused with root vegetables and leafy vegetables which not only give you a recipe filled with protein, calcium, magnesium and beneficial minerals but comforts and restores. Amino Acids found within Bone Broth also have plenty of anti-inflammatory effects – hence why loads of people take bone broths to recuperate from illnesses.

Tips:

  • When boiling bone broths, adding an acid like apple cider vinegar or white wine help to further extract minerals from the bone.
  • You can enjoy this as it is or it can also be used as a base for additional ingredients. I’ve used it as a base and added thick slices of salmon, serving it up with hot fragrant rice.
  • Make use of your leftovers – these Chicken Drumstick bones were from dinner!
  • Don’t be limited by keeping it boiling at the stove, whip out the crock pot and boil it overnight!
