Slow cooker chicken broth?

sreese68 | May 9, 2011 01:32 PM

I've never made chicken broth before, so I'd appreciate a little help. I've recently found out that I can't tolerate onions or garlic, so I can no longer use store-bought broth in my recipes. I'd like to try making my own in my slow cooker.

My slow cooker is a little over 3 quarts. My plan is to use chicken wings, and I was thinking about 2 - 2.5lbs? Do I aim for filling the cooker halfway with chicken or something? Then 3/4 full of water? I'm not sure if there's some magic ratio of chicken to water! LOL! I may add a couple carrots and a stalk of celery to hopefully get some flavor in there! And cook on low for 8 hours, right?

Thanks for any advice you can give me. Cooking does not come naturally to me, so I usually need very specific instructions to be able to turn out something decent.
