One thing (besides the nutritional benefits and taste) that’s so great about this recipe … is that you’re using almost every part of the chicken.
Roast the chicken one day to eat the meat, and use the rest of the chicken to make this bone broth.

(Makes 6-8 servings)
Place the chicken bones (including legs, wings, and carcass) in a slow cooker. Pour the water over the chicken, which should be covered, and add the salt and pepper before pouring the vinegar over it.
Place the cover on the slow cooker and turn it to high for one hour, then reduce it to low and cook for 10-12 hours, or until the liquid reduces by about half.
Strain, reserving the liquid, and discard the bones. Use immediately or let cool slightly before placing in glass jars. It will keep in the fridge for about 3 days.
If you notice gelatin forming on your broth in the refrigerator, that’s because of the collagen in the broth. It will become liquid when reheated. Soooo good for you.
