  • 1 Whole Chicken or Chicken bones from at least 1 chicken
  • 1 onion quartered
  • 2 carrots roughly chopped
  • 2 stalk of celery roughly chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic halved
  • 2 Tbs apple cider vinegar
  • about 4 quarts of water


  • Place chicken bones, roughly chopped vegetables into the crock pot and fill it with water, add salt, pepper, spices, and 2 tbs of apple cider vinegar. Cook for 8-24 hours. After about 1-2 hrs skin the scum off the top. The longer it cooks the healthier it is. Allow to cool an strain out bones and vegetables. Pour into jars and place into the fridge for up to a week or place in the freezer for longer storage.


Honestly, I don't wash my crockpot after making the "roasted chicken" and put all the bones, skin, some of the vegetables, and a little bit of meat back into the crock. I then usually add back in some more veggies.
