Bone Broth: What You Need to Know

How to Make Chicken Bone Broth

Whole Chicken Seasoning Recipe

As mentioned in the "How to Make Chicken Bone Broth" video, here is the seasoning mix you can sprinkle inside & outside your raw whole chicken. It adds a lot of flavor to both the chicken and the bone broth. This seasoning recipe is optional. I don't use it every time. I like to mix it up and try different things. But if you're looking to add some yummy flavor, this is a great recipe to use! Feel free to use fresh herbs and/or garlic instead.

Ingredients:
* 2 tsp salt (I use pink Himalayan salt or Celtic sea salt) 
* 2 tsp Paprika
* 1 tsp Cayenne pepper
* 1 tsp Onion powder
* 1 tsp Thyme
* 1/2 tsp Garlic powder
* 1/2 tsp Black pepper 

Instructions:
* Mix all ingredients together in a small container.  
* Rinse the whole chicken. Pat it dry with a paper towel. Rub spice on inside and outside of the chicken.
* Place chicken inside the crock pot with your vegetables.
