Chicken & Vegetable Bone Broth
- 1 whole chicken (approx 3 lbs)
- 2 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)
- 1 large onion cut into ¼
- 1 tbsp whole peppercorns
- 2 crushed cubed garlic
- 1 sprig of fresh rosemary
- 1 bay leaf
- 3 carrots, cut into chunks
- 2 stalks celery, cut into chunks
- Water to cover
- Trust me this is the easiest way to make this immune boosting soup! Throw the whole chicken, the ACV, onion, and spices into a pot and cover with water. Simmer for about an hour and twenty minutes. An indication the chicken is likely cooked is when it is falling off the bones (always a good idea to check the temperature).
- Add the carrots and celery when there are 20 minutes left. This way they stay crunchy.
- When the chicken is cooked remove it, let cool and shred or chop the meat.
- The chicken can be added back to the soup or consumed at another meal
Option: if you want to get creative, add beans to this recipe. They cook quickly so add them 5 minutes before the chicken is about to come out.
