Recipe For Bone Broth Using Chicken

Head straight on to the recipe for Bone Broth ♥

A lot can be said for the health benefits of bone broth but that is not why I made it. I decided that a decent stock was always a good thing to have in the freezer and if it is good for you then all the better!

When it comes to the kitchen my sister and I are the complete opposite in many ways, and the same in others. She does not like cooking and for her, the Thermomix has been a ‘life saver’. For me, the more complicated a recipe is the more challenged I feel. But, we both believe in using nutritious ingredients. When Kerry got her Thermomix we face timed while she showed me how it works. She was making butternut soup and where the recipe called for water, she added bone broth. She makes this from scratch and I asked for her recipe so that I could make it myself, and share it on the blog. I adapted the recipe slightly to include more chicken meat. When she was in Johannesburg we were talking about the bone broth and the first thing she mentioned was that she now makes it using more chicken than she told me about in her recipe. I love the depth of flavour of the bone broth and this is one thing I would recommend you make to keep in your freezer. I buy whole chickens and we spatchcock them ourselves. Dave prefers to cut out the backbone as it makes braaing it that much easier. I freeze that, together with the wing tips and the bones left over after we have eaten, and use them when I make the broth. When I am ready to make the bone broth all I do is get the things I have set aside in the freezer out to thaw and buy a pack of chicken wings. If you don’t have dogs like mine who enjoy the carrot peels etc. save them for a few days as well to add to the pot. Also make use of any vegetables you have to hand that are looking a bit sad. This recipe is adaptable to suit what ever you have to in your fridge, so please feel free to play around.

  1. I love having broth in the freezer! You use the words stock and broth interchangeably and I am curious about that. I had in my head that they were somehow different.

    1. I use them here to mean the same as the bone broth makes for an excellent stock. Does that make more sense?

  2. Yep, I always have some in the freezer. A great stock or broth is the essential to so much that we cook. Always apple cider vinegar in it as well. Awesome Tandy 🙂
