Lemon Chicken Bone Broth
This is my most favorite bone broth to make because it is so light and versatile, it tastes great plain but also is wonderful as a base in making other soups or marinades. I always tell people that are interested in making bone broth to start out with chicken broth as I feel it is the most gentle and easily tolerated broth. Plus, I think there is something so nourishing about a chicken broth, it warms the soul from the inside out so you almost instantly feel the healing benefits. I love adding a little lemon to the broth as well because I think it makes it lighter and more flavorful, making it also easier to sip on throughout the day.
- Place the chicken in a slow cooker and cover with sliced lemons and lemon zest. Add filtered water until it reaches about 2 inches from top of slow cooker.
- Set slow cooker on low for 24 hours. After about 4 hours, the chicken should be cooked (depending on slow cooker). Once chicken is cooked, take chicken out and set aside to cool.
- Peel chicken off the bone and set meat aside. Return bones and skin to slow cooker and let it cook for the remaining time.
- After 24 hours, strain the broth into glass storage containers or serve immediately. You can also add sea salt to taste or any other herbs and spices that you'd like.
