Detox Chicken Bone Broth Recipe: This Ginger Chicken Broth Recipe Is a Win-Win

Ready for a detox and health boost? It has been said that drinking bone broth may help your body absorb nutrients, improve gut health and boost immunity. While there's still limited research of the health benefits of bone broth, we know that it is delicious to sip on. Not only that, it's not hard to make.

You'll need a whole chicken for this detox bone broth recipe. The chicken is gently simmered in water along with ginger root, garlic, green onions, cilantro and an optional bay leaf. After an hour, the meat is removed from the chicken and the bones put back into the broth. The gentle simmering will continue for four to five more hours. Pour the broth through a mesh strainer and sip on it immediately or refrigerate to enjoy later.

This easy ginger chicken broth recipe is not only a tasty sip, but you're left with the leftover chicken meat to make recipes with throughout the week. From casseroles to chicken salad to tacos, use the flavorful cooked chicken in any recipe that calls for cooked chicken. It's a win-win!

Recipe Notes

  • Save the chicken meat for recipes.
  • Store the broth in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Put all the ingredients into a large soup pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook until the chicken is tender, about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove the chicken and turn the heat off while it cools. Once cool, remove the chicken and put the bones back into the broth. 
  2. Continue to gently simmer the broth, covered, for 4 to 5 more hours. Strain the broth through a mesh strainer, if desired, once it is done simmering. 
  3. Serve the broth with a wedge of lime, more chopped green onion and cilantro, if desired.
