Chicken Ragu



Normally people use a chicken carcass for soups and things like that. I decided to make this red sauce with what was left over from my crock pot chicken. I intentionally left a ton of meat on the bones so that this sauce would be extra meaty!


Here is what I used:

1 left over chicken carcass (see Crock Pot Chicken Recipe - I used everything left in the crock pot)

1 chopped onion

4 chopped stalks of celery

4 chopped carrots

1 T olive oil

2 26 oz cartons of strained tomatoes

salt to taste


Here is what I did:

Heated oil in a large stock pot. Added onion, celery and carrots and sauteed until soft.

Added both cartons of tomatoes and brought to a boil.

Added the carcass and all remaining veggies and such from the crock pot.

Cooked at a simmer for about 3 hours.

Removed bones and big pieces of meat that had fallen off the bones.

With a hand mixer pureed everything in the pot to a smooth consistency.

Removed chicken from the bones and cut into small pieces.

Added the chicken back into the sauce and stirred.

Poured over zoodles.
