This is a recipe I grew up on but adjusted to make it easy and convenient. My grandmother made this often when I grew up in the early 60's. She raised chickens in her back yard and made broth before frying or baking the chicken so we always had broth for soups and gravies. Try this , I'm sure it will become a favorite.
