Use Chicken Broth Instead Of Water In Recipes

When a soup, casserole or sauce recipe calls for water, I substitute chicken broth instead because it really enhances the flavor much more than water. You can be frugal with this idea by easily making your own.


Take a roaster carcass from a turkey, whole chicken, or 2-3 pounds of chicken wings. Place in a crockpot, cover with water, add a couple of cut up carrots, a stalk or two of celery, salt and pepper to taste. Cook on low for 7- 8 hours. Let cool, drain liquid through a colander, pick out any meat for later use. Place in fridge overnight and fat can easily be removed in the morning. Place cupfuls in ziploc freezer bags or ice cube trays. Freeze until needed.

Taste the difference it makes! The little bit of effort is worth it!

Yes , I do this as well! It is another way to get the nutrients into the family ,esp. from the veggies in the broth, that otherwise might be missed.

We do this with vegetable broth when making rice.
