Tip: to whip this up in no time roast a whole chicken at the beginning of the week. Then remove chicken and parts from the carcass and store up to a week. Use the carcass to make bone broth in slow cooker by combining with vegetable scraps and enough water to cover and cook on low for 24 hours. Strain and store in fridge for up to a week in sealed container or 4 months in the freezer.
