nancy grace, my last few pots of chicken broth was tasteless. I had lot of bony pieces, 2 packages of thighs a 4 whole breasts, pluscarrots, Leeks, parsley carrots, celery, peppercorns, bay leaves & saffrom. I cookek it 22/2 hours strained all the hot liguid through cheesecloth, the added chopped parsley, rosemary & thyme. It tasted like warm mwater, are chickens to fault i make it the same way each week, but afre adding lot of salt & pwpper and some sugar in the pot i was making of chicken cooooorn soup, i ended adding lots of boxed broth, Heck i should use the store bought stuff in the first place. Also, the breast I bought from the Giant was tringy and tasted fatty I did take all the fat out, i also had saffron in the broth. If my broth is no better than thT BAch, I my A WELL USW BOXED BROTH.
