      I usually make my broth in the crockpot, but as I am home right now for a few days, I tried this out. What a delicious recipe - the roasting of the drumsticks adds so much flavor. (And it did not hurt that drumsticks were on sale at the market)! Thanks for a great version of our favorite broth!

      Excellent chicken broth full of flavor! I used a total of 6 lbs. of chicken pieces that I had in the freezer, fresh garlic and parsley from the garden, and V-8 juice. I froze some of the broth in recipe size portions, in containers from the dollar store labeled with masking tape and date. Also froze some of the broth in ice cube trays, then placed the cubes in a zipper bag to use for deglazing pans and making gravy from drippings. Made for Please Review My Recipe.

      Love this broth - easy to make, not only healthy but wonderfully flavorful too. One of the first recipes made for the swap in order to have plenty of that lovely chicken broth I like to keep on hand in the fridge and freezer - ready to use for the recipes requiring broth or stock. Didn't have chicken legs - used an equal amount in chicken parts. Haven't done the oven thing for one long time - it really adds to the flavor. The aroma was such that I suspect the neighbours were sure we were having company! Thank you Syd, your recipes are always winners at our house!
