Chicken Broth

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by mommyoffour

I make broth all the time. I store it in my freezer so I have it whenever I need it. This is the recipe I use when I have extra chicken pieces that we wont eat for dinner.

Easy and delicious broth. I hate that store bought broth has so much sodium and really not much flavor. I made extra to store in the freezer. Thanks for posting.
