How to Make Roasted Chicken Broth

In this video, Chef John shows you how to make a delicious broth using a whole roasted chicken. Roasting the bird with veggies gives the broth lots of flavor and a nice depth of color. You’ll discover Chef John’s secret ingredient, an unexpected, “small yet brilliant” addition to the broth. You’ll also see how to bring the broth just to a boil—and then keep it at that perfect small-bubble simmer for the rest of the time. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John's Roasted Chicken Broth. And once you’ve strained the broth, you’re ready for Chef John’s Chicken Noodle Soup.

Believe it or not, one of the best broths comes from the remains of an eaten Costco's rotisserie chicken.Whatever they marinate it in, it gives a great flavor.If it needs help, I add Better than Bouillon and it makes a very flavorful broth. At $4.99 a cooked chicken, I get two meals plus the chicken soup.I agree on the noodle choice.

Hi Chef John - I'm confused about what to do with the dark meat that you had in the broth? Do you add it to the soup or ??? Thx - LS

As to the comment of freezing and cooking the carcass, I also do this with my turkey. They both add great flavor to the broth.
