It’s a New Year! If you’ve resolved to feed your family better this year, I’ve got some solutions for you.
For the month of January I want to highlight quick, healthy meal starters. These are the quick and healthy recipes that you can make and use to create dozens of different meals! They are the meal starters that are the backbone of creating healthy, organic meals at home!
First up! – How to Make Organic Chicken Stock. Here’s why I love this recipe:
- Requires a Whole Chicken – Buying a whole organic chicken is much cheaper than buying boneless, skinless breasts. Plus, you need the skin and bones to really flavor the broth, so a skinless breast just won’t do. Using a whole chicken is what makes Chicken Stock versus using the skin and bones only which makes Chicken Broth. This recipe is great because you now have cooked chicken ready to throw in any recipe.
- Saves Time! – This recipe does require time – 2 hours – but only about 15 to 20 minutes of hands on time. I do this on a Sunday when the game is on and we’re all hanging around the house anyway. All it really needs is babysitting.
- Big Payoff! – This recipe creates 8 cups of chicken broth and over 4 cups of cooked chicken. I know you have a million recipes in your arsenal that use chicken broth and/or cooked chicken. Think how easy it is to make this on Sunday and have all the ingredients ready to go to throw together a white chili on Tuesday!
- Big Savings! – No need to buy organic chicken broth – you made your own! In the video, I also show you how I use what would be “food waste” to flavor the broth! PLUS you can save the skin and bones and freeze them. Wait until you have a second bag of skin and bones. Use them to just make a batch of broth! You don’t have the benefit of the cooked chicken, but you made something out of what would’ve been food waste! How frugal of you.
