So I posted my Slow Cooker Whole Chicken recipe a while ago, promised to post about the stock I make from it and then promptly forgot. That’s pretty much the story of my life. So without further ado, let’s take a look at how to make chicken stock with no sugar.
If you haven’t noticed, chicken stock is one of those things that are difficult to find sugar-free off the shelf. In fact, it my 2nd trip to Whole Foods looking that convinced me that I needed to figure out my own recipe. This is super-tasty and easy get ready but there are a few things you need to know before you make it.
First of all, you will need to cook an entire chicken in your Crock-Pot like this. Second, after you pick all the meat off the bone, you will need to put the carcass back in the crock-pot. Third, once you follow the recipe below you will need to strain out anything solid to leave just the stock. Fourth, the stock can be frozen for dang near forever, I put some in ZIploc bags and some in an Ice Tray so I get small amounts easily. Fifth, once you strain out the stock you can pick the bones out and stir the soft bits in with your dog’s food. Seriously, you will make your dog’s whole year.
