You’ll never use canned chicken broth again after tasting this. It’s delicious, economical, and can be made in batches then frozen in ice cub trays or tupperwares and taken out as you need it.
2 1/2 pounds bone-in chicken pieces
6 cups water
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
1 onion, quartered
1 tablespoon dried basil
Place the chicken pieces, celery, carrots, onion, and basil in a slow cooker. Cook on Low setting for 8 to 10 hours. Strain before using, and discard vegetables. Chicken may be removed from the bones, and used in soup.
