Delicious, simple, and healthy chicken broth that basically cooks itself.
Print Recipe


  • chicken bones
  • 6-8 cups water
  • Celery
  • Carrots
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Bay leaf
  • Thyme
  • Sage


  • Dump everything together in a pot. Don't chop it. Don't dice it. Don't do any extra work. If you're missing the herbs, that's fine.
  • Turn on stove.
  • Bring to a boil, and then simmer for as many hours as you want. Preferably lots.
  • If it's too strong, add more water.
  • If it's too weak, hahahahahahahahah!
  • When you think it's simmered long enough, take everything out but the liquid. Or if you're really smart (Bellie isn't), just take the liquid out. That's what Nellie does.
  • Enjoy!
