Gut Healing Chicken Bone Broth

Gut Healing Chicken Bone Broth


Bone broth is one of the key ‘tools’ in my box of healing recipes for gut health.

Fantastic help with leaky gut, in which case you take 1 cup at each meal.  Can also be used as a bone broth fast, drinking about 350ml x 5 times a day.

Also great for arthritis and joint pain as it contains good amounts of collagen, gelatin, amino acids, chondroitin, glucosamine, glutamine, as well as easily absorbable forms of calcium potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and sulphur. All of which are also fantastic at reducing inflammation.

You can make a large batch – double or triple the recipe below, simmer for hours (the longer the better – keep topping up with water) for greater concentration of healing nutrients and freeze. I like to freeze mine in various sized containers and ice cube trays for ease of use.  For relief for troubled guts, have a mug of warmed broth on waking (I know, not quite your usual espresso – but it’s worth it), then a mug before lunch and one before dinner or before bed.

If you make it right and along the recipe below, it should not feel or taste greasy. If it does, make sure to remove all skin before cooking and if still ‘fatty’ then cool the sieve broth all the way and remove the upper layer before freezing.

Also great to use as a base for soups, sauces, or to add taste to rice, quinoa or GF pasta.



  • Organic chicken bones with some flesh (1 or more carcasses)
  • 4 carrots, chopped
  • 4 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 large onion chopped (leave out if sensitive to onions)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 5-6 sprigs parsley
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • cold water to cover the bones



  1. Fill a large pot with cold filtered water to more than cover all the ingredients
  2. Bring to the boil then simmer gently for 6-12-24 hours or up to 36 hours (can be done in a very low oven too, but make sure to top up water occasionally)
  3. When done, discard the solids and keep the broth.
  4. Cool down at room temperature then keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  5. For leaky gut and gut problem relief, have a cup of broth with every meal until symptoms subside.
