Savory Chicken and broth

READY IN: 4hrs 15mins
Recipe by AuntWoofieWoof

This is a basic chicken broth recipe. You can use the broth in recipes calling for canned chicken broth. The beer really gives it a richer and fuller flavor...more savory. You can use the chicken for chicken sandwiches or in recipes calling for cooked chicken. You can also make a good soup with it. Just add your noodles and/or vegetables to it. The seaonings measurements are approximate.

This is a very handy recipe. I used the chicken in a pasta salad with some rotini, chopped green onions, hard boiled egg, and Ranch dressing. Definitely not bland or boring! I added the broth to stuffing I cooked on the side with roast chicken. It made it very flavorfull. I'll be using this in my OAMC rotation because it's versatile and Flavorful. Thanks for sharing AuntWoofie. Made and enjoyed for PAC Spring '09.
