Kicked Up Chicken Broth

If you don't make your own chicken broth (who does, really?),
here's a tip from Julia on how to jazz up the store bought stuff: 

Add white wine! 

I've tried this a few times and it really does enhance the flavor.
I mean, it's still chicken broth, but its really good chicken broth! 

Here is what you do, according to Julia
in Mastering the Art of French Cooking:

Start with 2c. store-bought chicken broth.

Add 3 TBSP each: sliced onions, carrots, and celery,
1/2c. dry white wine, 2 sprigs of parsley, 1/3 bay leaf,
and a pinch of fresh thyme.

Simmer 30 min., strain, and it's ready to go in your recipe.

Bonus:  You now have a bottle of white open,
so you might as well have a glass!



  1. Yum, this I will have to try :)

  2. Oh yeah! Now you're talking my language!

  3. Add wine to anything and you've got my attention! I will certainly try this!

  4. This makes me laugh, I am always "sneaking" wine into my recipes... my hubby doesn't drink, but I don't know if he recognizes the flavor for wine. lOL

    I love that all of the recipes on here have alcohol in them!! YAY! hahaha

  5. I am a crazy person who does make my own broth...but we add wine to just about everything we can...yum!
