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
- Save scraps over time. lol!
- Prepare things as described above (chop onions, slice garlic).
- Throw everything in the slow cooker.
- Cook on low for 8 hours.
- Remove bones and vegetable scraps from broth.
