Easy immune-building chicken bone broth

An undeniably healthy bone broth that uses up those chicken leftovers. 



  • 1 whole organic chicken carcass (bones from a roast chicken dinner)
  • 12 cups water
  • 1 cup onion
  • 3-4 cups vegetables: carrots, celery leaves (you can use veggie scraps)
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • Seasoning: parsley and basil stems

  • 1 teaspoon unrefined sea salt to taste if desire


  1. Strip the chicken clean and save the meat in a container to use in the soup later.
  2. Put all the ingredients into a large pot and bring to the boil.
  3. Reduce the pot to a simmer and stir it well. 
  4. Cover and cook for a minimum of four (but ideally eight to 12 hours).
  5. You can cook this for up to 24 hours if you own a crock-pot.
  6. Remove any large bones or skin.
