Yields1 Serving
 100 g chicken (you can add more chicken - you just need to track your portions)
 parsley
 onion powder
 garlic
 thyme
 rosemary
 oregano
 basil
 bay leaf
 salt
 black pepper
1

Fill saucepan 3/4 full with water.

2

Bring to boil.

3

Add chicken and seasonings.

4

Boil for 20 mins.

5

Remove boiled chicken & serve or refrigerate and save for later.

6

Strain out bay leaf & seasonings.

7

Let broth cool to room temperature.

8

Skim fat off surface (if any).

9

Refrigerate broth.

10

Once cold, skim the rest of the fat from the top (if any).

11

Store in refrigerator or freeze for later use.

12

TIP: You can add on-protocol veggies such as 3-4 stalks celery (I usually add the trimmings that I don't eat) and 1 onion for more flavor - just be sure to strain them at the end. You can also choose to omit the chicken altogether and just use the celery and onion with the seasonings for a simple veggie broth. OR add your steak trimmings that you've inevitably had to trim from your steaks and add to the broth for a beef broth.

13

TIP2: I usually freeze the broth in ice cube trays after cooling and skimming all fat. Then after they freeze, I place the cubes of broth in a freezer bag. This makes for easy use when 'frying' up shrimp, chicken, etc. Just toss a broth cube into a pan and let it melt then add your meat, etc. It adds flavor and keeps food from sticking.
