Easy Chicken Stock




You already know that chicken bones make great stock but who has time to do this for a few ounces of stock? Start a "stockpot" in your freezer. Place deli roasted chicken carcasses in a heavy duty gallon freezer bag and store in the freezer. When the bag is filled, its time to make at least a quart of stock.

More Information:

Add some seasoning, 5 cups of water and the bones to a big pot. If you like, add a carrot, onions, and celery. Simmer 30-60 minutes, strain through a colander. Really great stock is ready to use or to freeze for later.

  • You can actually do this with the carrots, celery and onions, too. You can put clean onion peels and the ends that you chop off, the ends of celery that you might normally throw out, clean carrot peelings into either the same freezer bag, or start another one. - by BETHS60
