-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.

  • I made this tonight after buying/eating a chicken from Sam's Club. I used all dried spices and onion, as well as about 5 dried-up baby carrots I had sitting in the crisper drawer. All I have to say is WOW! I could just drink this stuff!
