Wondering why the stock is yellow? It is because this recipe calls for the addition of turmeric powder. Which is super healthy for you as it contains a list of health benefits.

Such as: Improves digestion, anti-inflammatory, boost immune system, promotes weight loss, detox the liver, helps control diabetes and more.  

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN BONE BROTH

  • In order to make this stock, you will want to save the chicken carcass of two whole fryer chicken. I tend to freeze the caucus once we are done with the meal. From that we have a few frozen in the fridge for when it comes time to make soup from scratch.
  • Then to make the broth, your simply rinsing the bones and carcass to place into a large stock pot.
  • That is covered in 8 cups of water and is boiled on a low to medium to low heat for 45 minutes. 
  • This will make a delicious chicken carcass broth for the soup.

Utilizing the bones of  a leftover chicken to make a chicken bone broth makes for an amazing soup. 

And really puts that whole chicken to use.

Then from that broth you will simply add in a whole chicken or left over meat from the last chicken to this soup.

  • If your using left over chicken pieces, simply add that during the last 5 minutes of cooking this soup.
  • If your using fresh chicken breasts then simply add those to the prepared bone broth stock and let them cook whole that way before removing the breasts to shred with forks. 

Then placing that shredded chicken back into the pot to cook with all the vegetables and spices.

I added dry macaroni to this soup, you can subsite with any pasta really as long as it fits the spoon.

Or try some white rice instead!
