One-Hour Homemade Chicken Broth
Instead of the hours of simmering that classic chicken broths call for, our five-ingredient version delivers rich flavor and body in just under an hour, start to finish. We simmer chicken wings or drumsticks until they give up most of their flavor and collagen, yet the meat remains good enough to be put to another use. It’s a good idea to leave the broth salt-free or only lightly seasoned; if it’s paired with salty ingredients or used in a recipe that calls for reduction, the dish won’t end up overseasoned. Refrigerate the broth in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days or freeze for up to a month.
large yellow onion, chopped
large garlic cloves, smashed and peeled
01In a large pot over high, combine 2½ quarts water, the onion, garlic, bay and peppercorns. While the water heats, use a sharp knife to make several slashes in the skin and flesh on both sides of each wing or drumstick, cutting all the way to the bone. Add the pieces to the pot as they are prepped.
