  • 1 whole chicken 3+ lbs
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1 TBSP Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2 TBSP Onion Powder
  • 1/2 TBSP Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper

For Broth

  • 1 Chicken Carcass left over from roasting
  • 1 large Carrot
  • 2 Celery Stalks
  • 1 Yellow Onion
  • 5 cloves Garlic
  • 2 TBSP Apple Cider VInegar

    (the weight of the bird x 6. Exp: 3lb bird would be 18mins)

  7. Let the pot naturally release.

  8. You can be done at this step or you can Broil in the oven for about 4 mins to give the chicken more of a roasted feel. If you do not broil it will just be moister and fall apart easily. Great for shredding!
