This is absolutely one of my favorite recipes. It is so simple, yet the flavor is so great. It also gives me a good chance to use bone broth–which is great for connective tissue, digestion, fighting inflammation and promoting strong and healthy bones. You are certainly able to swap in stock or regular broth if you don’t want to purchase or make your own bone broth.
What I typically do is buy an organic rotisserie chicken from Whole Foods. I use part of the chicken to make chicken salad, the rest to make this soup and the carcass to make bone broth.
I put the carcass in a crockpot, fill the crockpot with filtered water and then add 1 T of apple cider vinegar. I let it cook on low over night. I strain the broth in the morning and then put it in the refrigerator. You will notice that the bone broth will gel due to the gelatin content. That is a good thing!
You can also purchase bone broth in the refrigerator or freezer section of a local health foods store.
