I finally bought my Instapot last year and saying it’s come in handy would be a massive understatement. And making this Instapot chicken bone broth recipe is a perfect example just why.
If I were to make this delicious savory broth with a crock pot I’d be adding several more steps, and hours. Many hours.
Remember when grandma would give you a hot cup of broth when you weren’t feeling so hot? Well, she knew what she was doing. And so does science.
This Instapot Chicken Bone Broth Recipe is loaded with vitamins, nutrients and phosphorous. Tissues and bones also contain collagen. Cooking collagen turns it to gelatin, which provides the body with amino acids, and thus, proteins. The Collagen from Chicken Bone Broth may well help your joints.
Drinking a cup of bone broth a day can help fuel anti-inflammatory amino-acids into the body and help heal the gut too! Homemade chicken bone broth contains gelatin, a protein that can help support gut health. Gelatin has been linked to promoting a healthy gut lining, which can reduce intestinal inflammation and improve digestion. Additionally, the amino acids in bone broth, particularly glutamine, may help repair and maintain the integrity of the intestinal lining, making it beneficial for individuals with leaky gut syndrome or other digestive issues.
You also can use some herbs to add to the taste of your broth additionally. Think parsley, oregano, thyme. Or any other herbs you see fit!
While these are three compelling reasons to drink homemade chicken bone broth, it’s essential to note that its benefits may vary depending on the quality of the ingredients and the preparation process. Using high-quality, organic chicken bones yields a most nutritious and flavorful broth. Additionally, consuming bone broth as part of a balanced diet can contribute to overall well-being and provide a tasty and versatile base for various recipes.
And by using your Instapot you get to enjoy your broth in just a few hours vs waiting!
