Easily add flavor to soups, pasta dishes and more with this Low FODMAP Chicken Broth recipe. And, it’s made in a slow cooker for extra ease!



  • Bones of 1 (2 lb.) a cooked chicken
  • 2 carrots, washed and chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, washed and chopped
  • 5 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 3 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 5 sprigs fresh parsley
  • 1-inch piece fresh ginger, sliced into coins
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 8 whole peppercorns
  • 2 quarts water
  • Salt, to taste (optional)


  1. Place all ingredients into a 2-quart slow cooker.
  2. Cook on low for 8-12+ hours. Turn off heat and let cool slightly.
  3. Remove large chicken bones and vegetable pieces using tongs. Place a strainer over a large bowl. Pour remaining broth through a strainer. For a clearer broth, strain a second time using cheesecloth to line your strainer. Season with optional salt to taste. 
  4. Place broth in containers to cool completely. Cover and refrigerate for use within 3 to 4 days. Or, freeze for longer use.


Celery: Per Monash University, a low FODMAP serving is 10 grams (about 1/4th of a stalk).

Yield: Will vary based on cooking time due to evaporation. Water may be added throughout cooking to increase yield, however, this may result in a more diluted flavor.
