Basic Chicken Stock

I make this stock with leftover chicken and bones.  Click here for our wonderful roasted chicken recipe. It is a great way to get the most for your money and stretch a dollar.  You can freeze the stock for later for use with your recipes instead of store-bought.  If you just want to make the stock with out leftover chicken, use one pound chicken parts instead, preferably with bones.

I let the stock cook on low for a few hours to pull out the nutrients from the bones. You can use a crock pot instead of the stove top and just cook the stock on the low setting for the same amount of cooking time.

I do not add salt to my stock, I prefer to add salt to the actual recipe I am using it for, this helps to reduce sodium intake.

When the stock is done and cooled, if you are freezing, I would recommend freezing in portion sizes so you can use it in your recipes.  I generally use glass canning jars, or  you can use Ziploc freezer bags to preserve room in the freezer.  Make sure to label and date the stock before freezing.

Basic Chicken Stock
For this recipe I used the carcass from the Roast Chicken Recipe. I was able to make quite a bit of stock out of the leftovers and bones. If you just want to make the stock without using leftovers, use one pound chicken parts instead, preferably with bones.
