Ever since a health coach, told me about making bone broth with chicken feet, I tried it and have been hooked ever since! Chicken feet have an incredible amount of collagen and gelatin in them! I do love the beef bone broth also, but I love the taste of the chicken bone broth even more!
To buy your organic chicken feet, I would order them online, that is what I do! There are several farms that will ship to you. Below are a few I listed, but you can search the internet for more and read about the farm and how they raise their chickens. I always choose pasture raised, organic.
When you prepare bone broth at home using animals that graze on pesticide-free land, you're incorporating essential trace minerals into your diet. These minerals are crucial nutrients that support our body's functions.
A FEW FARMS IN USA TO BUY YOUR CHICKEN FEET
- Blackwing Quality Meats
- Simons Certified Organic Family Farm
- White Oak Pastures
- Tide Mill Organic Farm
Making your own bone broth is cost effective & easy, however it is a bit of a process. It is not for everyone, but for those who want to enjoy this amazing beverage and all the benefits from your own home, but don’t want to make it, then I highly suggest buying homemade frozen bone broth from sources like Pete’s Paleo.

Chicken Feet Bone Broth Recipe
Homemade Chicken Bone Broth
This is health in a cup! What a super food - It's just packed with nutrition!!
Have it as a warm beverage or as your base for a delicious soup or in your favorite recipe.
2-4 lbs of organic chicken feet
3-4 quarts of filtered water
4-8 table spoons of apple cider vinegar
1 onion rough cut
1 celery stalk
Things you will need when making your bone broth: Large stock pot, Asian Strainer, a few large bowls, fine-mesh strainer with handle, wide-mouth funnel, Mason jars, large metal spoon, and a ladle.
Set your stock pot on your stove and put 2-4 lbs of chicken feet in pot, if frozen, that is fine. Pour the apple cider vinegar over the chicken feet and let sit (with no flame) for about 45 minutes. This step pulls out all the nutrients from the bones.
Now fill the pot with filtered water about 2 inches above the bone and throw in the veggies.
Turn flame on to simmer and put lid on pot and let it simmer for 18-24 hours.
Next turn flame off and let cool for about an hour, then lift out all the bones/veggies with your asian strainer into a bowl.
Now take another large bowl or a large pot with a lid and put the fine mesh strainer over the top and pour the broth through strainer to filter out all the gritty bits.
Put lid on or plastic wrap if it is in a bowl and put in refrigerator to cool down. The fat will separate and rise to the top. I let mine cool for at least 4 hours to over night.
Take broth out of refrigerator and skim off the fat with a large metal spoon. The broth will be like jelly which is GOOD, this means it is loaded with collagen and gelatin. (That’s the the stuff you want)!!
Set about four or five 1 quart mason jars on counter and put the wide mouth funnel over one and scoop out the broth with a ladle and put into the jars.
Put 3 days worth of broth in refrigerator and freeze the rest. It only stays fresh for about 3-4 days. However, you can freeze it for up to one year.
IMPORTANT: When freezing, only fill the mason jars up to ¾ full. This allows room for it to expand, so when it freezes, the jars won’t crack!
To serve yourself a nice warm mug of bone broth to enjoy, this is what I do:
Put ½ of the 1 quart mason jar of broth into a sauce pan on stove and warm up on medium heat, add 2 scoops of collagen peptides, 1 teaspoon of coconut oil and ½ teaspoon of pink Himalayan salt. Once warmed to your liking, pour into a large mug and squeeze ¼ of a lemon into broth and mix.
I love this so much. It really is health in a cup. I am addicted!!!!
