Learning how to make chicken broth in the Ninja Foodi has saved us a lot of time and propane. Let me show you how we use the Ninja Foodi to simplify life.
I never thought that making chicken broth would be so easy to do at home.
For some reason, I had this elaborate idea in my brain about what it would take to make chicken broth…
But, I was wrong.
Making Food in the Ninja Foodi
After what seemed like MONTHS I finally convinced my husband to let me retire my Instant Pot and Air Fryer and purchase a Ninja Foodi.
This thing has easily become my favorite appliance in my kitchen.
Not only does it air fry, bake, roast, slow cook, and pressure cook… But, you can make broth and then roll right into air frying a steak (after wiping it out of course).
OH, and you can make fries and zucchini chips too!
How to Make Chicken Broth in the Ninja Foodi
When it comes to making broth in the Ninja Foodi I do things a bit different than most folks.
I like to pressure cook the bones first and then set it to slow cook.
This cuts the cooking time down and gives a rich flavor to the broth.
One recent bout of broth making left me crying due to negligence on my part… I left my jarred broth on the counter overnight. 😭
Talk about a punch in the stomach. It was some GOOD broth too.
Why Make Chicken Broth?
Making broth over buying broth is a money saver and you can know the quality is on point.
And, if you're sensitive to certain things you can make sure that what goes into it is actually good for you.
On top of that, you can add herbs to the broth and make it medicinal in nature.
Kids coming down with a cold? Pop in some oregano and a bit of rosemary to help with kicking that cold to the curb.
Benefits of Making Your Own Broth
- You get to control what goes into it.
- You are able to season it how you want to.
- There's never any question about the quality.
- You can store it how you want.
- It's cheaper.
If you're already buying whole chicken or bone-in chicken then saving the bones to make chicken broth should be a no-brainer.
You can roast a whole chicken, pick off the meat, store the bones in the freezer for a big batch or use immediately to make broth.
Want to make some beef broth? Stay tuned for a recipe.Print
- 1 whole chicken carcass
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- water to cover bones
- Optional: 2-3 cups veggie scraps
- Put all ingredients in the Ninja Foodi and add enough water to cover the bones completely.
- Secure the pressure cooking lid on the pot and press the pressure cooking setting. Put the pot on High for 30 minutes and press start.
- Once the 30 minutes is up, do a quick-release on the pressure and immediately turn it on the slow cooker setting for at least 12 hours on low heat.
- After 12 hours (up to 24 hours) in the slow cooker, remove all the bones from the broth and strain the broth through a fine-mesh strainer or some cheesecloth.
- Fill mason jars with strained broth and store in the fridge for immediate use or in the freezer to keep longer.
This is the Ninja Foodi my family uses.
