If a recipe is overly complicated, I avoid it—so if you’re like me, you’re going to appreciate this foolproof dish. This is truly the easiest chicken soup and makes the most delicious bone broth. I keep it simple so that I can plan a meal without the stress that comes from complicated instructions. I’ll serve the chicken soup to my kids and even add rice to bulk it up, and then I’ll store and sip on the bone broth throughout the week and add fresh ginger or drink it plain. It’s amazing!

Homemade Bone Broth
Dietary Info:Gluten-Free, Paleo-Friendly
Prep Time:15 mins
Cook Time:2+ hours
Total Time:2 hours 30 mins
1 organic whole chicken
2 onions, chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped
1 small bag of carrots, chopped
Salt/pepper to taste
1. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan. Sauté the onions, celery, carrots, and garlic until soft. Add salt and pepper.
2. Add the whole chicken and sauté for a few minutes.
3. Add enough water to the pot to cover the chicken. (I add a lot of water to make a lot of bone broth.)
4. Once the water is boiling, put it on low/simmer and let it cook for at least two hours—the longer the better. (I’ve left it for four hours before on low, and the chicken just falls apart.)
5. To serve as a soup, pour the broth and good pieces of chicken into bowls. You can add spinach, ginger, and anything else you want to add freshness before you pour the soup. I also add rice to the kids’ bowls.
6. For the bone broth, strain the remaining liquid into mason jars. Let it cool completely and put it in the fridge.
