Bone broth is one of the most nutritious foods you can consume, including popular chicken bone broth. One of the keys to a health-boosting bone broth is the long cooking time (at least 24 hours), because this infuses it with all of the beneficial nutrients.


  • 4 pounds chicken necks/feet/wings (you can also use the carcass and bones from a whole chicken — do not use the meat)
  • 3 carrots, chopped
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped
  • 2 medium onions, peel on, sliced in half lengthwise and quartered
  • 4 garlic cloves, peel on and smashed
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 1 teaspoon whole peppercorns
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 56 sprigs parsley
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1820 cups cold water


  1. Place all ingredients in a 10-quart capacity slow cooker or large pot on stove.
  2. Add in water to cover.
  3. Simmer for 24–48 hours, skimming fat occasionally.
  4. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Discard solids and strain remainder in a bowl through a colander. Let stock cool to room temperature, cover and chill.
  5. Use within a week or freeze up to three months.
