Directions

  1. Combine water, chicken, carrots, celery, onions, leeks, sea salt, garlic, garlic powder, rosemary, dried parsley, and dried thyme in a large stock pot; partially cover pot with a lid. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until chicken is fully cooked and falling off the bone, about 2 hours.
  2. Remove chicken from pot. Stir in fresh parsley until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove broth from heat and allow to cool slightly. Strain broth into freezable 2 to 4 cup containers. Use immediately or freeze.

I omitted ALL of the salt, since that much isn't healthy and I let everyone salt their own. Otherwise, the flavors were wonderful. Marked it as 3 stars due to the extremely unhealthy salt content--1 tbsp. would have been more than enough for my entire crockpot, let alone 7 (since I halved the recipe).
