Roasted Chicken

Directions 

In a slow cooker

place a chicken carcass (grass fed organic is best)

water

1 – 2 bulbs of garlic peeled

celery broken in large pieces

carrots cut large pieces

onion chopped in large pieces

2 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar

some basil

a few hot chili peppers (optional)

Cook on high setting for 2 hours turn heat down to low and cook for 10 – 24 hours

(discard vegetables as they have now turned mushy and lost their flavor)

Chicken left on bones can be used in soup.

Since chicken broth is derived from bones, it is rich in several important minerals. An 8-ounce serving of chicken broth offers more than 200 milligrams of potassium, which is 10 percent of your requirement for the day. Potassium is essential for a healthy heart, as well as muscle and skeletal contractions, explains the University of Maryland. Another high-profile mineral in chicken broth is phosphorous. An 8-ounce serving of broth has about 70 milligrams of phosphorous. Phosphorous aids in metabolism, helps build protein and healthy bones and teeth, according to MedlinePlus.com.
