Chicken Broth in a Slow Cooker


This crockpot recipe for whole chicken soup makes broth for use in other recipes. Because it's made in the slow cooker, you don't need to fuss with it. I like to use breasts and wings, but any bone-in pieces will make a nice broth.

Prep Time:
15 mins
Cook Time:
8 hrs
Total Time:
8 hrs 15 mins


  • 2 ½ pounds bone-in chicken pieces

  • 6 cups water

  • 2 stalks celery, chopped

  • 2 carrots, chopped

  • 1 onion, quartered

  • 1 tablespoon dried basil


  1. Place chicken, water, celery, carrots, onion, and basil in a slow cooker.

  2. Cook on Low for 8 to 10 hours. Strain and discard vegetables. Chicken meat may be removed from bones and used in soup.
