So with all of the yummy goodness your chicken left behind, you will be able to make some really wonderful homemade chicken broth and it’s really simple.

Simply debone your chicken.

Throw all the bones back into your crockpot with the liquid that is left over.

(I keep an ongoing bag of these frozen.) Add 5-6 cups of water. Place the lid back on your crockpot, turn it on the low setting and let it go all night long. In the morning, strain the broth. I like to use a slice of cheese cloth. It makes the job easier.
