Food Babe's Chicken Stock
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 6-8 cups
  • 1 whole chicken or chicken bones (3-4 pounds)
  • 1 yellow onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 4 celery stalks, chopped
  • 5 sprigs fresh parsley
  • 5 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 garlic cloves (optional)
  • sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3-4 quarts of filtered water
  1. Place all of the ingredients except the salt and pepper in a large pot. Pour the water over the chicken and vegetables until it is just covered. You may have more water than needed.
  2. Bring the water to a boil, skimming off any foam that floats to the top. Cover and turn down to a low simmer. Cook for 3-4 hours. (Alternatively, you can make this in a slow cooker on low for 12-24 hours)
  3. Strain the liquid through a fine mesh strainer. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. You can store the stock in a glass jar in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
**Please choose all organic ingredients if possible.**
