Healing Chicken Bone Broth
This is nutrient packed and highly supportive. The “good ole pot of chicken soup” really does help!
I buy several Rotisserie Chickens each week. I buy the Organic Naked Rotisserie from Whole Foods- that is my first choice when they are available. I know- I occasionally make my bone broth from chickens I roast but time is valuable in our house and that isn’t always the best use of it. I “disassemble” these and separate light and dark meat into glass dishes to use for my weekly recipes.
(2) Naked Rotisserie Chicken Carcasses (leave some meat on bones and use some of the skin)
Distilled or Spring Water (just make sure it is from a clean source)
Add in any saved vegetable scraps you have from the week
1/2 teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar (I use Bragg’s- it helps leach out the nutrients from the bones)
1/2 teaspoon of Celtic Salt
*Add any additional seasonings you may want if using for cooking
*Add juice from 1/2 lemon if you are not trying to create a jelly type consistency
*To create a thicker broth add chicken feet or chicken necks (sounds gross but if you are healing then it’s worth it)
Cook on high all day and I turn down to low overnight, adding water if needed. Strain out the bones/remnants and allow to cool before pouring into glass jars. I fill several single serving jars. Ideally you would drink one jar before each meal during times of healing. This is a great way to heal your gut or to help recover from an illness.
*A faster way of preparing this is with a pressure cooker. I use my Instapot and get great results!!! I use my Instapot for making Coconut Yogurt, Soups, Browning, Sautéing and more! It is truly a 7 in 1! You can also get a lid for the Instapot and use it as a slow cooker.
I use part of the bone broth in soups and save the rest for drinking or other recipes. Adding in celery, squash, onion, garlic, carrots & tomatoes makes it a quick and healing soup!
I also order a Bone Broth Powder from the Dr. Axe website that is VERY convenient. I use one level scoop in a mug of hot water and sip on that before bed and during the day if I am needing a little extra.
