I was refusing to make my own chicken broth for many years, but the day I made some, I was regretting for not doing it earlier. If you haven't made broth at home, I would highly recommenced it. It does simmer for a very long time, but it's not much hands-on.
This chicken broth will infuse a soup with great flavors, but can also add flavors to many other recipes, such as rice or other grains.
Store broth in a refrigerator for up to a week or freeze it in a plastic container for several months.
