We had two gorgeous days this week, and then…back to rain and cold.
We cannot seem to shake the illnesses over here, so I’m still cranking out the bone broth soups!
LOVED this one!!
This recipe can be varied in so many ways, but…here’s what I did!
I buy two rotisserie chickens each week. One we eat as a meal, and then I use both carcasses, for the bone broth. The other chicken goes back into the soup I make!
Ingredients (feeds 4 with leftovers)
- Two Rotisserie Chickens (Use both carcasses for the bone broth but the shredded chicken from both can be used for multiple meals!)
- 4-6 Medium sized carrots (I used usually use organic Rainbow Carrots, because… FUN COLORS! 🙂 but didn’t have them this time. I highly recommend them though :))
- 1 Tablespoon crushed ginger
- 1 Teaspoon crushed garlic
- 1 Medium to Large Onion Diced
- Sea Salt and Pepper to taste
- Soft boiled egg (boil for 7 minutes and then immediately put into ice cold water)
- Avocado and any other veggies to top for crunch. I added tomatoes, but shredded carrots or sprouts would be yummy too!
- Ramen Noodles (I used these) . Or you could do zoodles or sweet potato “noodles” for Whole 30!
- Pick off all the chicken from the bone and set aside in an airtight container.
- It’s not necessary, but I found these bags and I put all my bones in them. No need to pick out bones and you get to keep all the yummy onions and carrots Very crude Video HERE haha.
- Place the carcass in the slowcooker with the carrots, onions, garlic, and ginger.
- Pour 10-12 Cups of Water depending on your crockpot. I filled mine until 1″ of the top.
- Cook on low overnight for 12-18 hours. Honestly…longer the better.
- The next morning, pull on the bones out unless you bought the bags!!. I left the carrots and onions in there, and for me…it’s a must for flavor! They were mushy, but I figured the flavor would still be good and it SO was!
- Add in ramen noodles and let them sit for a few minutes or all day.
- Add shredded chicken back in and let sit on warm until dinner.
- Top with soft boiled egg and any other condiments.
