Basic Chicken Bone Broth

Have you picked clean the carcass of a lovely roasted, local free-range chicken, and wonder now how to make some tasty bone broth? Here is a convenient recipe for simple chicken bone broth, for those times when you have the leftover bones of one chicken to work with. Since the bones have been roasted it in the oven already, they will not require any more cooking before adding to the broth pot: however, baking in 350 degree oven for another 30-45 minutes will add flavor and color to your broth.

Transfer the bones of one roasted chicken into a medium stock pot, and cover with water, plus one inch. Bring to a low simmer for 2 hours, adding water to keep level up. Half hour before done, add 2 Garlic Cloves, crushed; and 1 Bay Leaf, then return to simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and add bouquet garni of Rosemary and Oregano Sprigs, then let stand to cool for 15 minutes. Sieve out bones and herbs, and discard: reserve broth for sipping, use in soup recipes, or reduce for use in sauces. Season with 1/2-1 tsp sea salt and 1/4 – 1/2 tsp pepper just before serving.

As the end of my maternity leave grew closer, I worried how my family would cope with my going back to work. I was plagued by \'what\'s for dinner?\' anxiety, and wondered how I would be able to spend quality time with my son while trying to cook dinner every day. Chef Laura\'s services were exactly what we needed to ease this transition. A well-stocked freezer of lovingly prepared, delicious and nutritious food put my mind at ease that at the end of the day my family would always be well fed.”

As a busy individual with a lot on the go, I appreciated how quickly Chef Laura was able to accommodate my cooking request - within a week of contacting her I had a fridge and freezer full of ready-to-eat food. Laura worked to develop a menu plan that addressed both my vegan dietary choice and individual food preferences. While all the dishes were delicious, the kichadi is beyond amazing, and I will be requesting it again! Laura provided a fantastic timely service that delivered excellent vegan food, great convenience and flexibility, and a tidy kitchen to boot.”

Chef Laura came to our home to prepare meals on a weekly basis, fresh groceries in hand. We had specific dietary requirements: primarily salt free, low fat, low sugar, high fiber and vegetarian. Laura met these criteria unfailingly, and yet was consistently able to produce extraordinary & exciting flavors in her many varied creations. Laura did all the shopping for her ingredients and clearly had exceptional knowledge about nutrition & wholesome quality products.”
