Chicken Broth


You'll Need

Large stockpot


  1. Place chicken (breast-side down) and giblets in large stockpot; add cold water. Season with salt. Bring to simmer, uncovered, on MED. Simmer 1 hr, skimming top every 15 min. Baste chicken with cooking liquids. Be careful not to boil.
  2. Add carrots, celery, thyme, onions, bay leaves, and peppercorns to stockpot; return to a simmer on MED. Simmer 2 hours, reducing heat to MED-LOW if broth starts to boil.
  3. Transfer chicken to work surface; let cool. Remove meat from bones; store meat in tightly closed containers in refrigerator or freezer until ready to use. 
  4. Strain out vegetables and spices; discard. Refrigerate or freeze broth until ready to use.
Chef Tips
  • To remove accumulated fat on the broth, refrigerate until fat gels and skim off.
  • Leftover broth can be frozen (do not fill container to top, allow space for broth to expand on freezing).
  • You can substitute whole chicken with 2-3 leftover chicken carcasses.
