Slow Cooker Chicken Broth

You just got done making something delicious out of your rotisserie chicken and now you are left with all of those bones and fat. Normally, you throw them away, but why not make something out of them? This is a super easy way to turn those bones into something tasty. And it can't get any better than a slow cooker recipe that you can walk away from and let it do all of the work!


2 rotisserie chicken carcasses, along with any fat, skin, extra meat
1 head of garlic, cut in half
3 celery stocks, chopped, including the leaves
3 large carrots, chopped
1 bunch of fresh thyme
1 bay leaf
2 Tbs. apple cider vinegar

Place the chicken carcasses, etc. at the bottom of a slow cooker. Add the chopped vegetables, herbs, garlic, bay leaf and 2 Tbs. of apple cider vinegar. Pour water in until it becomes level with the other ingredients. Cover and cook for 12 hours, give or take. It can cook for a longer or shorter period of time it just makes the broth stronger if you leave it cooking longer.

Now, I'm aware this is a very unflattering picture that doesn't do the flavor of this broth justice, which is why it is the last picture on here :-). And yes, it does make more than these two mason jars. I just wanted to show you some of the finished product in it's raw state before it moved on to a higher purpose of something even more delicious!
