Homemade Broth

At WinCo I often buy chicken in the largest quantity possible because it is usually cheaper. When I bring it home I cook all or most of it at once. Then I divide it up and chop or shred it and put it in the freezer to use for meals later like enchiladas, hawaiian haystacks, you name it.

My mom taught me that if you season the water that you boil the chicken in it gives the chicken good flavor and the remaining "water" that the chicken was cooked in can be used as broth. I use the broth to cook with (as broth) and I also love to cook rice with the broth instead of plain water. I just freeze it in old yogurt tubs.

This picture doesn't look very appetizing, so you'll just have to take my word for it. All I use to season the water is salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder.

Jo! I had neglected checking this blog in a while and am loving looking through all of your latest and greatest. Thank you for all of the tips, they are fabulous!

PS I'm glad to know somebody else freezes all of their meat! I usually do that with my hamburger and people think I'm crazy.

I hear such great things about Winco, another reason I need to give Jordan that we need to live in Bosie. Great Idea to freeze your chicken after cooking it, that's a great tip to keep in mind!
