Making your own chicken broth is easy and tastes a million times better than any broth you can buy. It can make all the difference in a recipe – seriously. There are lots of ways to make chicken stock – this is the way that I do it. Whenever I buy a rotisserie chicken (love them at Costco), I use up the tasty meat for a chicken salad, Chicken and Spinach Stuffed Shells, or whatever really and save the rest of the chicken for making stock. When I say save everything, I mean save everything… all the skin, bones and juices in the container as well as any little leftover pieces of meat (like the wings). This way you can use all the stuff you don’t eat to make a delicious and flavorful stock. A bonus for me too is that I don’t feel like I have to scrape every last bit of meat off the bones so I don’t waste anything! This way I can throw it all in the pot with some fresh veggies and a few hours later have thick, aromatic chicken broth that makes me want to make a yummy soup right away! After it has cooled off, I will freeze mine in gallon freezer bags so I can grab them out of the freezer as I need them. It is convenient, easy, economical, and far superior to anything in the grocery store so I thought I’d better share…!
