Chicken broth is rich in gut-healing nutrients, amino acids, minerals, and vitamins. Chicken broth can be made two different ways—from a fresh whole chicken or from a chicken carcass that has been previously roasted. I prefer the flavor of stock made from fresh chickens. Plus, then you have a lot of cooked meat that can be stored in your refrigerator, which can be used to make a quick meal the following day. Use leftover meat for Chicken Pot Pie, or Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps! It is also delicious served over the Roasted Delicata Squash Salad with Apples and Toasted Pumpkin Seeds
