Homemade Chicken Stock

Okay, so this may not make you a meal (or look that appetising) but a great homemade chicken stock is the base to so many amazing dishes; it is essential to have in your recipe collection! If you ever buy a chicken to roast, or to butcher as I do, then you have no excuse not to keep the carcass and make a wonderful stock out of it. Trust me you won’t regret it, as it will provide you with such a delicious base to so many great dishes. It also freezes so there is no excuse 😀

–          Chicken carcass

–          1 onion chopped into quarters

–          2 stalks celery – roughly chopped

–          1 large carrot – roughly chopped

–          Small bunch fresh thyme

–          2 bay leaves

–          Salt & pepper

Put all the ingredients in a large pan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and then cover and simmer on a low heat for 3 hours.

Strain the liquid and pour into containers. This will freeze so you can use it when needed.
