Slowcooker Chicken Broth

Yesterday I shared a great recipe for roasting a chicken in the crockpot. Today, I want to tell you know to take the leftovers from that meal and make a wonderful chicken broth that you can then use as the base for soups and stews or just sip throughout the day.

This is a great way to make that one chicken go even further. Make the stock instead of buying chicken broth in a can or box. Take some of the stock along with a little of the meat from the chicken and whatever leftovers veggies you have in the fridge. Add a little rice and you have a delicious meal that’s also good for you. Best of all, it cost you almost nothing. Frugal cooking at it’s best.

Instructions
  1. Add the chicken carcass to your slow cooker.

  5. Add veggies, herbs and spices as desired.
