Scraps Chicken Broth Experiment

One day, I got a coupon on the bottom of my receipt for a free rotisserie chicken from Safeway.  I hadn't had that style of chicken for a while, so I enjoyed it.  Then I got another one from Costco.  I saved the carcasses along with vegetable scraps for this experiment.

I can picture one of my friends telling me to just throw all these carcasses and scraps out. Stop keeping the trash. LMAO! 😂 Girl, if you read this, you know I'm talking about you. It turned out good, but I think I should've added some celery.


  • 2 rotisserie chicken carcasses
  • 1/2 gallon vegetable scraps (mine was mostly carrot peels)
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 1 Tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 dash of cracked black pepper
  • water - enough to fill pot leaving about an inch to the top
  1. Save scraps over time. lol!
  2. Prepare things as described above (chop onions, slice garlic).
  3. Throw everything in the slow cooker.
  4. Cook on low for 8 hours.
  5. Remove bones and vegetable scraps from broth.
  6. Enjoy!

Broccoli Brussel Sprout Tots

Well, let me tell you, these were not amazing.  Perhaps it was because I decided to experiment with adding brussel sprouts.  Perhaps it was just not amazing to begin with.  I may never know.  I don't know if I'd like to try the original recipe that I wrote down.  I'm not sure if I was drunk when I wrote the original recipe down or what in the world happened.  I wrote that it came from a website called, but when I look for it, it doesn't exist. Wth?!

Anyway, here's my recipe:

  • 3 cups frozen broccoli
  • 1 cup frozen brussel sprouts
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 3 Tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  1. Prep ingredients as described above (chop, mince).
  2. Stir fry onions and garlic until onions are translucent.
  3. Add everything to food processor and process well.
  4. Shape into little pieces of shit.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
  6. Enjoy!
