I have been doing this for a while now and my hubby loves me a full 10% more than he would had I not figured this out!
1 whole organic chicken
paprika (About 1 tsp)
garlic salt (About 1 tsp)
pepper (a few shakes)
3.5 cups of water (for step 2)
Step 1 is to make the Chicken itself and step 2 is for an amazing organic broth!
Step 1: Remove the “guts” from inside your chicken and rinse him off in cool water for a few seconds. Sit the chicken in the crock pot and sprinkle him with your seasonings. Let him cook for about 7 hours on low or 5 on high and you have yourself a beautiful chicken! Remove the meat from the carcass but DON’T THROW THE CARCASS AWAY. Keep your carcass in the Crock Pot with the amazing juices for step 2.
Step 2: Add 3.5 cups of water to the juices and carcass. Cook on low overnight or for another 7 hours, strain and contain! Refrigerate your broth and scoop off the layer of fat from the top before you use it.
*If you are going to freeze the broth, first refrigerate it, then remove the fat layer, then freeze!
**I often cook this chicken on a Monday so we have the meat for sandwiches for the week (better than lunch meat for your bod) and I use the broth on Tuesday for soup!
