HCG Chicken Broth Recipe Tips and Tricks
How can we make this chicken broth even more delicious? Here’s an idea – Use split chicken (or whole chicken) with bones in and gently boil for an hour or two longer. If you are going to include bones and skin, make certain to spoon off all fat & filter the brother through a strainer.
The objective for making our own broth is to limit the ‘bad stuff’ from canned broths while at the same time enhancing the flavor. Make sure to spoon off the fat no matter what! Make it flavorful without the additional calories.
Keep in mind, when making your own broth, you are really making the foundation for many of your dishes. That said, spice it up or down as you see fit! Perhaps even including some other herbs during the cooking process might suitable for you. Did someone say a sprig or rosemary or a pinch of marjoram? It’s your call!
