This gut healing and homemade chicken soup from scratch is very nutritious especially when the broth is made the traditional way through simmering bones for 12-24 hours resulting in a mineral rich broth that offers many health giving properties.
After learning how beneficial bone broth is I cannot let any bones go to waste without making a broth for my soups. If your looking for a homemade chicken soup recipe from scratch using a rotisserie chicken you can use the bones from the chicken to make your own homemade bone broth for the most flavorful gut healing chicken soup.
Below is my basic bone broth that I make using chicken bones from a free range whole roasted chicken that I buy from the local butcher. Putting in a little bit of apple cider vinegar will help to draw minerals out of the bones, then I just add some salt, cracked pepper and enough water to cover the carcass in my slow cooker and let it simmer overnight. You can also flavour your broth with any herbs that you like.
