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.
Very good, Sandy! I used this to make chicken noodle soup and have a couple of changes if you're going to use it for this purpose. First, place the bay leaves and peppercorns in a spice bag so they are easy to remove. Next, add the carrots (sliced) about 1/2 way through cooking and the celery about 15 minutes after that. This way, you can "recycle" the veggies and not have to work around the peppercorns. Kudos!
This was delicious. I used this as the base for homemade Chicken and Noodles. It was served with mashed potatoes and green beans. YUM!!!!
