I use the dark meat and broth for homemade chicken soup with homemade noodles. The chicken breast makes wonderful chicken salad or use in casseroles. I use the dark meat and broth for homemade chicken soup with homemade noodles. The chicken breast makes wonderful chicken salad or use in casseroles.

    1 medium whole raw chicken- cut into pieces with skin and fat removed from all pieces except the wings.

    2 medium stalks of celery with the tops cut in half.

    2 medium carrots quatered

    1 unpeeled yellow onion cut in half.

    12 cups cold water

    2 teaspoon thyme

    2 bay leaves

    6 - 8 sprigs of fresh parsley


1. Add everything to large pot and bring to boil. Lower heat to simmer and cook uncovered for 11/2 to 2 hours. Remove chicken and contine to simmer rest of broth for 1 hour.

3. Remove meat from bone to use as you wish.

4. Strain broth and use as you wish. ( I add about 1 cup each of diced carrots, celery, onion, potatoes and 1 clove of garlic along with the dark chicken meat to make chicken soup. I sometimes add homemade noodles to this for a more hearty meal.)

The yield for dark meat is about 2.5 cups and the yeild for white is about 3.5 cups.

The yield of broth is about 10 cups.

  • I'm making this now with boneless skinless thighs that I trimmed evan more. I'm also crocking up salsa chicken so I used up all fresh onion, celery, carrots. I have dehydrated on hand so I'm using that. Hope its good:( I just have to cook my meats and beans on my day off or I break diet. - 9/29/12

  • I also like to make my own broth and will freeze it for a soup base. It is more flavourful.

  • I love homemade broth! This is very flavorful and can serve as a wonderful base for many different recipes calling for chicken or turkey broth! I used leftover turkey with the bones! - 9/14/07
