    Sandy in Houston's Note:

    This is the base recipe I use to make chicken and noodles, chicken and dumplings and chicken with rice soup. You can use the chicken for any recipe that calls for cooked chicken and freeze the broth in one cup servings for any recipe that calls for chicken broth.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Wash chicken well. Place all ingredients in large pot. Cover with water.
    2. 2
      Cover and bring to boil over high heat. Set lid at angle so steam can escape from pot. Lower heat to gentle boil and cook for 1-1 1/2 hours. Add more water if needed.
    3. 3
      When meat is falling off the bone, remove from heat. Remove chicken from broth and let cool. Once cool, remove skin and bones and discard. Chop or shred meat.
    4. 4
      Strain broth and cool in fridge until fat hardens on top. Remove fat and discard. Freeze unused broth for future use.

      Good recipe! My only question is why on earth would Grandma discard the fat from the broth? Grandma's know that's the best part!

      Oh wow! I used this today to make some broth and I needed cooked chicken for a recipe tonight. Decieded to cook a whole chicken and freeze the extra meat and broth. This tastes wonderful. Full of flavor. Thank you so much for showing me the way to wonderful broth.
