Health Benefits

Chicken has an incredible amount of protein for its low calorie content. Chicken is also loaded with essential vitamins and minerals, especially B vitamins, which are helpful in preventing cataracts and boosting energy and immunity.

And don’t forget to save the bones! When cooked for an extended period of time, they offer up a broth that is incredibly rich in collagen that will help to heal your gut and fortify you hair, skin, nails and joints. When you have a large amount of chicken bones or a carcass, toss it into a slow cooker and add celery, carrot, onions and a tablespoonful of apple cider vinegar (to help break down the bone minerals). Cover with water and cook on low for 12-18 hours. Strain out all ingredients.

Can be used as broth in any soup or frozen for later!
