If I were to tell you that you could make chicken stock in the slow-cooker while you sleep with ingredients that would usually be tossed in the trash, would you try it? Well, that is what I am doing today!
In my freezer you can find a bag of chicken bones and scraps ready to make stock when I get enough, then it hit me – use the left over rotisserie chicken carcass and stop saving bits and pieces and never having enough when you need it. When I buy a chicken, I cut the meat off and serve it to the family (no eating drum-sticks for my kids). Then I put the pieces in my slow-cooker with 1 Tablespoon of balsamic vinegar and 8 cups of water. Turn it on high and 8 hours later drain the broth and there you go.
If you do not have balsamic vinegar, apple cider vinegar also works well. The vinegar helps to break down the bones so it releases the nutrients.
As always, feel free to print the recipe card and add it to your collection. Chicken stock Recipe Card
