Homemade Chicken Stock Recipe:

Chicken stock is quick to make and so good for you! Remove the meat from a cooked chicken carcass. Place carcass in a large pan of water. Season well with salt and pepper and a bay leaf if you have one.

 

Bring to the boil, then simmer for 2 hours. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely, then drain the liquid from the carcass. Discard carcass and bay leaf. The stock can be frozen or kept in the fridge for several days.
