“This is a basic chicken broth recipe. You can use the broth in recipes calling for canned chicken broth. The beer really gives it a richer and fuller flavor...more savory. You can use the chicken for chicken sandwiches or in recipes calling for cooked chicken. You can also make a good soup with it. Just add your noodles and/or vegetables to it. The seaonings measurements are approximate.”
