Making Chicken Broth From Rotisserie Chickens

June 3, 2013

I know this is so simple it seems silly to write a recipe for it; however, I've been cooking for a family of 9 for over 25 years now, and I've thrown away many rotisserie chicken carcasses before it dawned on me that I could save $1.50 per quart by just taking a few minutes of my time. It makes the cost of our dinner of roasted chicken almost pay for itself

Ingredients:

Can be prepared in crockpot.

  • Extremely simple
  • 1 Rotisserie Chicken Carcass ($5.00)
  • 8-10 cups water ($0)
  • 1-2 cup diced carrots, celery/onion ($0)
  • 1-2 tsp salt/pepper ($0)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice/or vinegar ($0)

I let the broth cool just a bit, then strain it and use a funnel to fill quart mason jars, tighten lids, then store for a week or so in my refrigerator.

Steps:

  1. Place all ingredients in a large stock pot, or crockpot.
  2. If cooking on stovetop, bring to boil, then turn down heat, cover, and simmer for 2-3 hours. Or, cook in crockpot on High for 4-6 hours.
  3. Strain broth by using a slotted spoon; store in refrigerator and use within 1 week.

When I purchase a rotisserie chicken, I strip the meat from the bones and use the bones and non-meaty part of the chicken wings to make chicken broth for my next batch of chicken soup, some of which I freeze in ice cube trays for a quick cup-of-soup.

After the chicken meat was gone and picked clean; I mean really clean, what did you do with the rest of the bones, skin and stuff?
