Recipe Created By: Robbie
Prep. Time: 6:20
leftover bones, skin, and meat from 1 rotisserie chicken
2 carrots - quartered, optional
1 Tbls. celery seed OR leafy greens from 1 bunch of celery
1/4 cup dried minced onion OR 1 sm. onion - quartered
1 Tbls. garlic powder OR 2 cloves peeled garlic
1 tsp. dried thyme OR 2 sprigs fresh thyme
1 tsp. dried basil OR 4 fresh basil leaves
1 tsp. dried oregano OR 6 fresh oregano leaves
1/2 tsp. dried rosemary OR 1 sprig fresh rosemary
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper OR 4 peppercorns
-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 meat 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.
