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.
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.
