Chicken broth question

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created March 17, 2011 at 12:41 AM

Ok I took chicken thighs, seasoned them and placed them skin down in a glass pan and cooked them for about 1 hour, maybe more...there is a good amount of water and fat left over...What should i do with this? I am interested in drinking broth in place of my tea with cream that I drink several times a day (which I think may be slowing my weight loss)...Anyway, Should I pick the bones clean then return the bones to the liquid and keep cooking?

I dont have a slow cooker anymore, but will get one soon..until then how long should I cook it?

thanks!

You're welcome! I don't bother seasoning mine either until I'm ready to drink/eat it. :-)

broth and stock isnt so much about the consistency, as the nutritional content. drawing the minerals and collagen out of the carcass takes a long time at a low temperature. youre more than welcome to season it and drink it, its not going to hurt you, but its not stock and doesnt have the same health benefits.

I would only make broth with bones from pastured chickens. The rest can be nutritionally bereft.

ok, but since I am already at a broth-y type consistancy but not full flavored yet, I would think I could stil chop the bones and add the veg and go from there...right? next time I can start from cold water..

Regarding the liquid left in the pan, I usually chug it like pot liquor or sop it up with coconut flakes, which get dumped on the dish like a topping.

this is really the best way to make chicken stock. theres a related recipe here on how to do it with chicken feet. either way, add a splash of apple cider vinegar. i let mine go for about 8-10 hours, sometimes overnight.

Here is a traditional bone stock recipe. The site also has a beef stock recipe and many Paleo friendly recipes that are all gluten, lactose and soy free.

You can drink the broth that's left in the pan, but if it doesn't taste awesome by itself, I'd save it, simmer the bones separately, and then add this broth to that. That's more or less what I do for making soup, or I use the cooking broth in making sauces where the full flavor of bone broth isn't necessary.

just put the bones and veg (onion of any variety, carrot, celery) in a pot with water. Add 1T vinegar to leach the most minerals out of those bones. Bring to boil, skim foam off, then simmer for 4-6 hours. Broth. Tasty tasty broth.
