This rotisserie chicken bone broth is a simple way to re-use all components of your meal.
So, I’ve been a bit obsessed with rotisserie chicken bone broth lately. I realize how morbid bone broth even sounds if you haven’t really heard of this craze but here are some simple and amazing facts about what it can do for your life.
Healing Benefits of Bone Broth
- Contains collagen which helps heal the gut lining
- Strengthens bones, teeth, nails and hair (we can definitely see a difference)
- Reduces joint pain and inflammation
- Boosts immune system
- Aids in healing allergies, asthma and arthritis
Although you can purchase (expensive) bone broth in stores, making it yourself is much more cost effective and way easier. ESPECIALLY if you did what I did and use the bones of a rotisserie chicken.
Ideally, you want your chicken to be organic as the quality of the bones relates to the quality of the minerals being pulled from them. Not only did I purchase this chicken from whole foods, but I got a couple dinners and a large pot of soup out of it!
This bone broth is not only easy, but you can also get a couple meals out of it before you turn it into a nourishing healing tonic.
