Chicken stock

by -

As we are constrained to minimal food shopping as the corona virus hits around the world, it’s becoming ever more important to get the most out of all our food. Here is a video showing you how to make chicken stock from your left over chicken carcass. Check out my chicken noodle soup recipe showing you how to make a simple soup from this stock.



  • Chicken Carcass


  1. To make chicken stock simply place your roast chicken carcass in a large saucepan and fill till fully covered with hot water. Place on the heat and bring to the boil then reduce the heat to a simmer and leave to simmer for 1 hour. You may need to add some more water while it is cooking. After 1 hour, sieve the bones out and leave the stock to cool. Once cooled it will form a layer of fat. Remove the layer of fat and then portion the chicken stock up and freeze in a labelled freezer bag. When you are ready to use the stock simply leave it to defrost and add to sauce/ soups.


  1. Chicken cooked Roasted once
    Bones made into stock and frozen? Twice
    Made into soup? Or something else? Three times
    Question is, can I now freeze the soup or the something else I made?
    Is it safe, or to many times?
    Loving watching your videos, only just discovered you.

    1. Once the roasted chicken is cooked, slice/pick the meat off and then start the stock straight away, it won’t have gone cold so technically the stock will be made in the first lot of cooking! Gives you more scope to use again!

  2. Just started watching all your videos got your latest book, just loving it, you are like the nations home ec, never mind joe wicks n his pe this is what I needed through lockdown 🤣🤣. As was never shown how to do chicken stock so thank you, looking forward to making my own chicken stock now
