Slow Cooker Chicken Broth
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 2½ pounds bone-in chicken pieces (I use thighs.)
  • 6 cups water
  • 2 stalks celery, cut into 3 pieces each
  • 2 carrots, cut into 3 pieces each
  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  1. Place the chicken pieces, water, celery, carrots, onion and basil in a slow cooker.
  2. Cook on low setting for 8 to 10 hours. Strain, discarding vegetables and setting aside meat. (At this point, I chop up the chicken and freeze it for later use.)
  3. Refrigerate broth overnight. Then discard the fat and freeze the broth for later use.
