Chicken Broth low yield

Recommended Posts

I just strained what was left in the crock pot overnight--approx 14 hours-- (remains of a whole chicken carcass, 2-3 onions, 2 carrots and the herbs and water as directed).  It yielded only 2 cups and looks very brown.  The recipe says it should yield 1 gallon.  Should I just add enough water to make up the difference?  Will this dilute it too much?

You lost a lot of liquid over those 14 hours. I normally use a pressure cooker and never have that problem, but I used my slow cooker once to see how it works. I had to add water once or twice to keep it at the right level until the end of the cooking period.
