Crock Pot Chicken Broth
I made chicken broth in my crock pot last night and let me tell you it smells delicious. i have read and read recipes on line about how much better your foods will taste if you make your own so i decided to give it a try. here is the recipe i used as i took about 4 different peoples and made my own
Crock pot chicken broth
3 Bonless skinless chicken breast
2 stalks Celery
1/2 bag 16oz Carrots
3 Cloves Garlic
1 Onion- cut in half
1/3 Container Cherry Tomatoes- Halved
I coverd everything with water and cooked on high for 4 hours. I strained the liquid out and froze the liquid. i decided to freeze in ice cup trays for easy access to to the broth and for easy measuring. 2 cups is approx 1/4 cup.
i threw out everything but the chicken but i am sure you could eat the carrots. i did taste it and i think i may cook it on low for 10hrs next time. i think it taste a little to watery but oh well its better for you than the stuff in the cans. i am using the chicken this week as i am making crock pot chicken and dumplings on friday (recipe my mom gave me) and Chicken Encilada Soup on Wednesday (skinnytaste.com). i will post on how they turn out as well. they both require chicken broth so i thought it would great to try it this way.
