Chicken broth like any other bone broth is one of the healthiest foods you can consume. It is filled with so many necessary amino acids that are difficult to get from diet alone. Chicken broth is extremely versatile and is used by many chefs to enhance the flavor of their food. It is so simple to make and the benefits are well worth the time and effort.
Always use organic chicken and vegetables.
