Crock Pot Chicken Stock

Yesterday I shared a pressure cooker recipe for making your own chicken stock. This method is just as simple and rewards you with a chicken stock you can use to make from scratch chicken dishes. Come back the rest of the month to find chicken soup recipes where you can put this stock to work for you!

Slow Cooker Chicken Stock
2 large chicken breasts, bone in
4 to 6 cups water
1 small onion, sliced
4 garlic cloves, crushed
3 bay leaves
1 cup of mini carrots, or two carrots coarse cut
3 stalks celery, broken in half
1 teaspoon pepper
3 Tbls parsley
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried sage
1 tsp dried savory

Place ingredients into a crock pot and cook on high 2-3 hours until chicken is cooked through.

Remove the chicken, cool slightly and pull meat from the bone, set aside to use in another recipe.

Remove the carrots from the crock pot and compost or enjoy as a side dish.

Strain the chicken broth through a fine mesh strainer and discard the solids.

You now have a chicken stock you can use to make other fine chicken soup recipes.  Keep in the refrigerator for 1 week or freeze up to 3 months.
