A good broth will resurrect the dead! (South African Proverb)
As a tonic for everything from cold and flu to gut inflammation and sadness-of-the-soul, it’s roots go deep and it’s power is backed by research. Glycine and proline, two of the amino acids found in abundance in bone broth are the “healer” and the “sealer” in your body, mending tissues and such.
Brewing it in the pressure cooker (or slow cooker, instructions are included!) really makes things easy, and stored broth in the fridge can be used for straight sipping (add a splash of ACV, a pinch more sea salt!), at the base of soups and strews, or as the liquid in braised veggies, meats, rice, or quinoa.
Keep it stored in the fridge (5 days) or the freezer (3 months) in freezer safe jars that are not filled up all the way, and enjoy!
Gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free and delicious!

Pressure Cooker Chicken Bone Broth
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4
  • 2 lbs Whole Chicken Carcass
  • 2 Carrot (medium, chopped)
  • 1 stalk Celery
  • 1 Yellow Onion (chopped)
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
  • 12 cups Water
  1. Add the cooked chicken carcass/bones to the pressure cooker along with the carrots, celery, onion, garlic, apple cider vinegar and sea salt.
  2. Add the water to the pressure cooker. Lock the lid on and make sure the knob is set to the “sealing” position. Select the “manual” or “pressure cook” (on newer models) setting and set for two hours.
  3. Once the 2 hours are up, allow the pressure to release naturally, open lid carefully. If the bones are still hard and don't crumble when you squeeze, consider running the broth through the pressure cooker again. Strain the broth through a strainer. Discard the veggies and bones then transfer the broth into jars. Enjoy!
Chicken Carcass One whole chicken carcass is equal to about 2 lbs. bones. For a richer, more healing broth, add additional bones. You can save bones from chicken wings and such in the freezer and make broth when you have enough. Chicken feet from your local farmer add a serious collagen boost.

Use it With You can use this broth in soups, stews, skillet meals, while cooking grains or simply sip it on its own from a mug. Add an extra splash of Apple Cider Vinegar and a pinch of sea salt for mug sipping!

Layer of Fat A layer of fat may form on the top of the broth once it cools. This protects it from bacteria. You can keep it or skim it off once it has hardened. Just move it aside if you choose to keep it when you are scooping out /pouring your bone broth.

Prep Hacks Make and store broth in the fridge for 4-5 days or freeze until ready to use. For easy freezing, pour into an ice cube tray and freeze, then remove and place in a bag in the freezer.

Bone Broth Bone broth heals and seals the lining of the gut wall, helping to mitigate sickness, allergies, and inflammation.
