I have some chicken legs that I bought to make my first bone broth soup with, and I was excited to proceed, but as I did more research, I found that using bones without the meat of the animal is traditional. Oops! I did read one post that seemed to suggest it's ok to leave the chicken on the bone, as long as you cook the chicken first and then remove it, placing the bones back in the pot, and then continuing to cook for several hours to make your broth.
Do I boil the chicken as I normally would, for about an hour, and then let it cool, remove the meat, let the bones sit for an hour in water with lemon juice, then simmer the bones for 6-12 hours? Does boiling the chicken for an hour harm the bones or create msg? What is the best way to do this to ensure I get the best health benefits?
Thank you so much and have a beautiful day!
