Delicious and Soothing Chicken Bone Broth Recipe
This broth is fantastic especially if you’re having a gastritis flare, it’s soothing and nourishing and it’s super easy to make. The first time I tried it I had no appetite at all and when I tried eating anything I felt full after just a couple of bites and felt very uncomfortable. So I slowly sipped on the warm broth and the relief was almost instant.
The nauseous feeling disappeared and my stomach just felt very settled, and weirdly I actually had a glimmer of appetite, to say I was surprised was an understatement.
It contains Collagen and gelatin which are released from the bones as you cook them. These contain anti-inflammatory properties.
So how do you make this amazing broth? well, it’s very easy, especially if you have a slo-cooker, but you don’t need one.
Carcass of Roast chicken or use Chicken thighs/feet bones
2 carrots peeled and cut into chunks
2 sticks of celery
1 onion halved (if tolerated)
A pinch of Himalayan salt
1 teaspoon of parsley or coriander
1 bay leaf
We often have a whole chicken on a Sunday, so once all the meat has been cut off. I literally pull the carcass apart a little and pop it in my slo-cooker.
Then add some vegetables, I use celery and carrots, but if you can tolerate onions that would be good too.
Add a pinch of Himalayan pink salt, and a teaspoon of parsley or coriander and a bay leaf.
Then add enough water to just cover everything pop the lid on and leave for at least 12-18 hours, if you can leave it for 24 hours to get all that goodness out of those bones even better.
Then strain the broth through a colander and then to get all the bits out, put it through a muslin cloth too.
I store mine in plastic containers and freeze them, but you can leave the broth in the fridge for up to a week.
You can either use it as a base for a soup or just sip it throughout the day.
