Homemade Chicken Stock

The aroma of homemade chicken stock 
simmering away on the stove is absolutely divine! 
This is the basis for so many wonderful and delicious dishes:
soups, stews, casseroles, supper entrees and anything else you can dream up!
I make up large batches and freeze for future dishes.

Homemade Chicken Stock

1 Whole Roasting Chicken 
(or different chicken pieces)
3 Carrots, sliced in chunks
2 Yellow Onions, sliced in quarters 
(onion can remain unpeeled)
4 Stalks Celery, slice in chunks 
(with leaves)
1 Whole Garlic Bulb, cut in 1/2 
(you may peel and separate into cloves)
1 Punch Fresh Parsley
Fresh Thyme
2 Bay Leaves
2 T Kosher Salt
1 T Cracked Black Pepper

Place all ingredients in a large dutch oven. 
Fill pot with water and bring to a boil. 
Reduce heat and simmer broth for 3-4 hours. 
Strain broth and discard all vegetables. 
Remove chicken and debone. 
Place stock in refrigerator over night to chill. 
Remove fat on top of stock.

 Simmering Stock.....the possibilities are endless!

  11. More love in a bowl, Concetta! Homemade is so much better than canned, unfortunately I lean toward College Inn occasionally :) but during the fall and winter months I love to make soup! xo,

  12. At Whole Foods they sell Checken backs for super cheap and I make stock just like this all the time... please share this recipe on my blog

  13. Looks wonderful Concetta! I just took a organic chicken we had roasted for supper and made some of this for fall soups. So much better than canned! Thanks for linking this up to Home Sweet Home!

  14. I love the pot you're cooking with. I need to make chicken stock and store it in the freezer. It definitely tastes better than store bought.

  15. Thanks for the fabulous tips! Thanks for linking up to Fat Camp Friday. Hope you enjoyed your weekend, see you next time!

  16. Hi Concetta,

The Kitchenettes ~ A Hospitality Club

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.

The Kitchenettes is all about teaching and mentoring young girls in the art of hospitality. It is so much more than cooking or doing domestic tasks ~ hospitality is the very heart of God ~ a demonstration of pouring His love onto others. This group of young girls are learning the very nature and character of God as they serve people and sharpen their skills in homemaking.
