Making Small Batch Homemade Chicken Broth

Making Small Batch Homemade Chicken Broth

Inspired by a post from Budget Bytes on how to make your own chicken broth, I decided to finally dive head first into making my own.  This is something that I have been wanting to try for myself for a little while now.  You could say it has been on my foodie bucket list.  (I keep talking about this foodie bucket list of mine.  Maybe I need to do a post on it soon. ;) )  For the longest time, the thought of making chicken broth from scratch was daunting to me.  Why go through the effort when I could so easily pick up a carton of organic chicken broth at the grocery store?  But then as I read the Budget Bytes post, it occurred to me that it wasn't as complicated as I had been making it out to be.  My recipe below is adjusted slightly from the Budget Bytes recipe.  I didn't have an entire chicken of bones to use.  Just two large chicken breasts, so I adjusted the recipe for a small batch.  All in all, my recipe made 4 cups of finished chicken broth- perfect for say a chowder or a some homemade chicken noodle soup.  (Ahem... recipes for both are forthcoming. ;) )
