Recipe inspired by:

Course candida, Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Low FODMAP, Soup, Whole 30
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 6 hours
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 6 hours 10 minutes


  • 2 lbs Organic or pasture-raised chicken wings and drumsticks
  • 1 gallon filtered water
  • 1 Tbsp sea salt
  • 4 stalks celery ends removed
  • 2 carrots ends removed
  • 3 scallions ends removed
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice or raw apple cider vinegar


  1. Add all ingredients to a slow cooker. Cook on low for 12-24 hours. Alternatively, cook on high for 6-12 hours to speed up the process. To develop a delicious intense roasted chicken flavor, cook 24-48 hours. If water evaporates, add enough water to top off the crock pot so it remains full.

  2. Strain out the meat and bones using a slotted spoon. Place the drumstick meat into a seaprate container and pull off the bone for use in other recipes. Discard bones.

  3. Store broth in the fridge for up to a week. Use in recipes as needed or drink by itself. It will "gel" once refridgerated for a few hours - this is a good sign and indicates high gelatin content.

Recipe Notes

Using chicken wings and drumpsticks yield a richer broth that is higher in gelatin due to the collegen/connective tissue.

Tip of the Day

Yes, folks, there a difference between smoothies and juicing. Smoothies require a blender to mix ingredients into a drinkable paste. By incorporating the entire fruit and vegetable, smoothies provide fiber along with other critical nutrients. Fiber in particular is helpful for controlling your blood sugar, keeping you full for longer, and feeding the good bacteria in your gut. The downside to fiber is that it inhibits the quick absorption of nutrients.

Juicing extracts liquid from fruits and vegetables. Because juicing does not extract fiber, the liquid provides  a healthy and immediate blast of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants for your cells.

Smoothies and juices have great nutritional benefits–each in their own way. Regardless of your choice, remember that a smoothie or a juice is healthiest when loaded with vegetables and contain about one serving of fruit.
