If you don’t have an instant pot try cooking in:

  1. In your slow cooker: follow the directions below and cook for about 6-8 hours in your slow cooker
  2. In a large pan over stovetop: follow the directions below (minus the instant pot directions), you will cook your chicken in the pan for 5-7 minutes, then add the veggies, bone broth, and cover your pan. You may need to add in less bone broth if it has too much liquid just bring to high heat and cook until the liquid is absorbed.

“I started drinking bone broth a few years back when I was desperate to get my health back in order. It’s now a staple in our home… On the weeks where I am feeling a little less inclined to make my own, I really enjoy @bonafideprovisions.”
