Homemade Chicken Stock

210 mins (prep 30, cooking 180)
14 ingredients
10 servings
Can be made with roasted ingredients or raw. Notes: I use whole chicken carcass with most of meat gone or approx equivalent, good to have some meat left on it, if you can handle it, break some of the bones to get the marrow out to make it taste richer. Also, i save my veggie cuttings (outsides of onions, potato peels, carrot tips) and use them . I just stick them in a bag and freeze them until I make the stock. you can add 1 C white wine or change seasonings according to wishes or what is fresh and available. try not to make it more than minimally salty so can add when you are using it for other soups. For roasted chix broth: roast chix & veggies for 20 min at 500 to carmelize. Usually make this after I make roasted chicken and veggies for dinner and use left overs/remains. Just roast extra veggies and include the parts you trimmed off on the ones you plan to eat--tips of carrots, etc. If I'm feeling ambitious, I pick out the chicken bones and freeze the veg remains for dog soup and delight my dogs. I also make this using the parts of veggies I trim off whenever I'm cutting up/using veggies--outer layers of onions, tips of carrots, etc. I just stick them in a bag in the freezer and add them to the stock when I make it.
