Homemade Chicken Broth

Well, I figured since I needed to boil chicken for my freezer stockpile, may as well use the broth too! I'm going to freeze it in 1 cup portions in freezer baggies and use as needed. There is a ton left from boiling 8 chicken breasts today.

I diced 1 onion, 2 celery stalks, and 2 carrots and boiled in enough water to cover until soft. Then I added the chicken breasts and covered with water. Boiled the chicken for an hour, then shredded and removed the bones. Added the bones back to the liquid and continued to cook for a couple hours. Then, I strained all the broth in a colander and set out to cool.

And just for organization purposes, the extra shredded chicken from tonight.
