This healing chicken bone broth recipe is liquid gold. Rich in collagen, it's good for digestion and gut health. It helps support a healthy immune system, the joints, muscles, skin, hair and nails. Super easy and cheap to make!



10 -11 chicken feet (see notes) (free range, hormone & antibiotic free)

2 chicken carcass (free range, hormone & antibiotic free)

2 carrots

3 celery stalks (leaves removed)

1 onion peeled (cut in half)

4-5 garlic cloves peeled

1 small piece of fresh ginger

Bunch of fresh parsley

2 bay leaves

1 tsp of sea salt

1 tsp of peppercorns

1/2 tsp of turmeric (optional)

1/2 tsp of fennel seeds (optional)

2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar


  1. Start by roasting the bones: Lay baking paper over a baking tray, and add the chicken feet and carcass. Roast at 200 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes. This step is optional, but in enhances the flavour of the broth.
  2. Add all the ingredients to the slow cooker or pot: I like to add the bones first. Then add all the veggies, spices and vinegar. Fill the slow cooker with water to the very top. Gently combine, and cover with the lid. Cook in low for 24-48 hours. I always do 24 hours.
  3. Discard the solids: remove all the solids from the broth. I remove the big veggies and bones with tongs, and the small solids with a thin strainer.
  4. Let it cool and remove the fat: fill up jars (whatever size is convenient for you) and let them cool. Once it's cool, remove sim the fat from the top and discard it. You can save it and use it for cooking if you wish.
  5. For serving: since this broth is super concentrated, I usually go for approx. 1/2 broth + 1/2 water. Add salt and ground pepper to taste.


You can use any combination of chicken bones that add up to approx. 1.3kg. I love using mainly chicken feet because they have the most collagen.

This chicken bone broth is super concentrated. I find this works best for storage, as I need less jars, and therefore less space in the freezer or fridge.

Store the broth in glass jars. Use whatever size is convenient for you. I find that 500ml jars work ideal for me (three servings).

This healing chicken bone broth can last up to a week in the fridge, or up to three months in the freezer.
