One of my favorite things to make (and eat) in my kitchen is chicken broth. It just makes me feel good knowing I'm getting all the wonderful benefits of bone broth! 

Today I'll be showing you how to make chicken bone broth 2 ways, plus where to buy it!

Let's get started:



How to Make Chicken Bone Broth (And Where to Buy It)

Method #1: SLOW - How to Make Chicken Broth in a Crockpot 


This method is for you if you've got plenty of time on your hands and you want to throw everything into a crockpot and forget about it. Great for if you need chicken broth but you need to leave the house for a bit.

Method #2: FAST - How to Make Chicken Broth in the InstantPot/Pressure Cooker


This method is for you if you've got a few hours before you need to use your bone broth.

  • Place your chicken bones in the bowl of the Instant Pot (I own the 6-quart Instant Pot), add some veggies (I like onion, garlic, carrots, and celery), and a bit of salt and pepper (don't go overboard!). 
  • Add enough water to cover the chicken bones, but don't fill past the "Max" line on the Instant Pot.
  • Put the lid on the Instant Pot to the closed position, turn the valve to "sealing", and place on the "Soup" setting for 120 minutes. Allow to vent naturally.

Method #3: INSTANT - Where to Buy Bone Broth


If you have absolutely zero time and need bone broth RIGHT NOW, you can always buy it. It's pretty handy to have it on your shelf for emergencies. 

A couple of weeks ago I came down with a really nasty sickness. I didn't have the time or strength to make myself some chicken broth (and I totally forgot about the chicken broth in my freezer). So I cracked open a carton of Kettle and Fire bone broth, heated it over the stove, added some extra real salt (I like my bone broth EXTRA salty for sipping), and poured it into a mug. Hmmm...comfort in a cup.

What I like about Kettle & Fire are the ingredients: simple and good. I had a couple of questions about the ingredient list that Kettle & Fire answered for me:

One of the ingredients listed is "Organic spices" - I was pretty sure there wasn't anything untoward there, but I like to know EXACTLY what's in a product before I recommend it to you guys. Turns out the organic spices are just organic pepper, bay leaves, thyme, parsley, and salt.

Also, "Chicken Broth" is listed as an ingredient. Turns out the chicken broth is made from chicken feet, which are rich in collagen. I was pretty stoked to find out that Kettle & Fire is made with chicken feet!
