Chicken Stock


I make homemade Chicken Stock on a regular basis. It is a cost effective way to ensure you are getting good stock. I know you can buy it. I buy it all the time too because I run out. I use Chicken stock all the time and I don't think I can ever have enough. I love to cook my rice in it, it adds so much extra flavor. I recently started boiling my potatoes in it and it added so much flavor. I love buying a whole fryer chicken. Because I get a meal, plus I get a bunch of Chicken broth that I make with the carcass of the chicken. Here is how I make mine:

1 chicken carcass
8 cups water
1 large onion cut into 4 sections
4 stalks celery cut in half
4 carrots, cut into 2 inch pieces
1 bay leaf
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

Place all ingredients  in a large pot over high heat. 
Bring to a boil, Cover then reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 3 hours.
Strain and cool the stock, uncovered. Pour into an airtight container or jar and keep refrigerated until use.
