Chicken Broth


From EatingWell:  September 1997

Use the leftovers of a roasted chicken dinner (after removing the meat) to make this easy chicken broth.

About 3 quarts | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 2 1/4 hours



  1. Place carcasses in a large pot. Add onion, carrot, celery, garlic and water. Bring to a boil, skimming foam. Reduce heat to low and add herbs, peppercorns and salt; simmer gently, uncovered, for 2 hours. Strain through a fine sieve into a large bowl. (Discard solids.) Let cool slightly, then refrigerate until cold. Skim off fat.


Nutrition Note: Analysis note: After straining and skimming, broth has negligible calories and nutrients except sodium (120 mg per cup).
