This is such an awesome recipe – I have been doing since I was a kid.

First you need to make a whole chicken in the slow cooker – such as

Easy Slow Cooker Whole Chicken Recipe

Once you cooked the whole chicken leave the juices and bones in the slow cooker – I use a 4 quart. Fill the slow cooker with water cover and cook the “broth” for about 10 hours. If you have extra veggies around you can put that in the slow cooker as well for extra flavor.

Strain the liquid from the bones and scraps. I use a colander first. Next I use a clean kitchen towel – this really helps make a “clean broth”

Next pour 2 cups of broth  ( or whatever measurement amount you want) into Ziploc bags or Tupperware and place your homemade broth in the freezer. I usually taste my broth first – it usually needs a little salt

Whenever you need broth just defrost a pack of broth. I would recommend using up your homemade broth within 6 months of freezing.

Enjoy!

I do this all the time and it’s the best broth around! It’s nice to be able to put every portion of the chicken to use. Sometimes I will freeze some in an ice cube tray and once frozen package in ziplock bags. That makes it easier to pull out a smaller portion when I only need a little bit for some recipes. It also makes them thaw out faster when ready to use.

I was going to mention what Kim did about the ice cube trays. It’s great when you’re making a stir fry and need just a little or to toss a cube or two into the water when making rice. Also, skip the salt in the broth. You can also add salt to whatever you’re making down the road.
