Last week, I cooked a whole chicken in the slow cooker. You can also use chicken pieces. I added salt, pepper, chopped onion, and minced garlic. I added only a little water to the bottom of the slow cooker because I wanted the chicken to be roasted and not stewed. Slow cookers will vary but I usually cook on high for an hour or two, then turn to low for the rest of the day. By evening the kitchen was filled with wonderful aroma!
I pulled out the chicken and deboned it. All the bones and skin I placed back in the slow cooker. I filled the slow cooker up with water, added a dash of vinegar, and cooked on low all night.
By morning, it was full of good rich broth. I strained the bones and skin out of the broth.
The bowl of broth was placed in the refrigerator.
Do you make your own chicken broth?
