Recipe – Chicken Stock

Posted by:

Bone stock (popularly called bone broth) is especially good for gut healing and it’s handy to have in the kitchen. Bone stock may alleviate joint and gut pain as well as boost the immune system and benefit hair and skin. Slow cooked bone broth contains amino acids, minerals and gelatin which support proper digestion and is also act as an antiinflammatory. Standard chicken stock or soup from the grocery store does not have the benefits of bone broth. It also meets the dietary recommendations for the RepairVite™ and ClearVite™ diets. It’s easy to make at home and tastes great.

Roast Chicken Bone Stock

Prep Time: 10-20 minutes

Cook Time: 4 hours to overnight


Organic roast chicken carcass

2 organic carrots

2 organic celery stalks

½ organic onion (with skin on but no roots)

2-3 organic garlic cloves

Filtered water

Unrefined sea salt

  1. Pull off usable meat from the roast chicken carcass (Recipe – Roast Chicken) and reserve meat for soup or other meals
  2. Place carcass and vegetables in a large pot and cover with water
  3. Bring pot to boil and then lower heat to a slow simmer for 4 hours to overnight
  4. Season with sea salt to taste
  5. Strain bones, any meat and vegetables from stock
  6. Serve as chicken stock or as soup

We typically keep roast chicken carcasses in the freezer and make bone stock when we have two or three of them. We also keep celery, carrot and onion scraps in a bag in the freezer and just add to them as we cook. If you add onion skins (not the roots) to the stock it will give it a pleasant color and flavor. You can drink the chicken bone stock straight (one of my son’s favorite snacks), use it for soup or use it in other recipes. You can also use a slow cooker for this recipe. The stock will keep in the refrigerator for about a week but needs to be frozen after that. We put most of ours straight into the freezer in mason jars for an easy meal.
