Step 3

Slow cook on low for 12-18 hours OR run two 120 minute cycles on pressure cooker.

Step 4

Remove majority of chicken and vegetables with slotted spoon, careful not to burn yourself. With oven mitts, pour liquid through mesh strainer and into large pot. If you’re planning on saving some for longer term use you can transfer to Pyrex or mason jar and freeze.

Step 5

Enjoy! Adding addictional spices like cayenne and smoked paprika can make the sipping experience more enjoyable. Aside from that there are a multitude of opportunities to replace water with bone broth in cooking. Boost the nutrient profile of things like rice or noodles being used for a refeed after a tough workout or just deglaze your pan after cooking a nice piece of meat.
