Chicken Broth

This is my first attempt at making chicken stock. I think it turned out great. I may need to add salt to taste as my recipe doesn't have much. I like to serve this with warm corn tortillas and a side of Spanish rice and refried beans. Please enjoy and let me know what you think.

The traditional chicken broth that grandma used to make for us, there is no better recipe to cure colds.
