Place your chicken in a large pot and fill with water until the chicken is covered with water but keeping the water level in the pot at least 2 in. from the top with the heat on high boiling the chicken.

When the veggies are roasted in the oven bring out and let cool.

Pick the bones out of what is left after you strain the chicken broth and then add back to your broth.
