I'm a Christian wife & homeschooling mama, saved by faith through grace. I changed my family's diet from SAD (Standard American Diet) to healthy, delicious & nutritious traditional foods. I've recently discovered there's a name for the way that I eat. It's called Primal or Paleo (I like the diet and think of the men and women who worked hard from sunup to sundown, constantly on the go, eating meat, berries they picked, cheese they made. I do not believe in evolution). No grains, legumes, refined sugars, and no/limited dairy.

Easy Chicken Broth

A friend just asked for my chicken broth recipe, and I reallized - I haven't blogged it yet! So here you go :)

Cook a chicken, either in the crockpot or the oven. Take most of the meat off the bones, saving the drippings and carcass. Throw it all in a pot and add some carrots, celery, bok choy, whatever veggies you have, for vitamins. I'm going to start adding Chicken feet and some raw drumsticks, but have to wait until next payday. You're probably not going to want to pick the veggies out, so don't fill the pot up. Add a splash of raw apple cider vinegar, fill pot with water. Simmer for 12-24 hours. Twenty-four hours is best.
Strain and fill jars or ziploc freezer bags with broth. If you have a pressure canner, you can preserve the broth by canning.

Use in recipes, as a tummy settler, or to make chicken soup (add chicken, veggies, and, if you desire - noodles)


  1. Could I slow cook it for 24 hours? Do you think that would work? I'm gonna try it.
