Gluten Free Chicken Stock is pretty much a staple in our house. Not only do we eat a lot of roasted chicken, but I make Gluten Free Chicken Stock to use as a base for soups, add to rice, and just plain drink.
I’ve been making chicken stock for so long, that I didn’t really make much of it until a couple of days ago. I first got my InstantPot four years ago, and gluten free broth was one of the first things I made. Some recipes out there make it seem complicated, or take a long time, but through some trial and error I have come up with the best gluten free chicken stock recipe ever.
What Makes This the Best Gluten Free Chicken Stock?
Besides the fact that this chicken stock is delicious, the color is amazing. Sometimes when I am making a quick broth in my Instant Pot, I don’t really pay attention to things like color since I’m just trying to make the stock as quickly as possible to use it for something else!
I made the best gluten free chicken stock by accident. I always use a roasted chicken carcass as the baste, but I had a few extra roasted carrots left over so I threw them in.
I roasted these carrots under my chicken, without any liquid in the bottom. They keep the chicken from sticking to the bottom of the roasting pan.
They also get nice and brown and cartelized on the bottom, and are absolutely delicious.
Adding these roasted carrots to the chicken stock after browning the chicken in the Instant Pot help give this stock its wonderful color.
This gluten free chicken stock is super simple with a leftover chicken, roasted carrots, celery, parsley, and apple cider vinegar! That’s it, nothing else.
