- Take cooked chicken parts (better if the meat's been eaten off already) and boil them in a pot for about a hour. You can add spices while this is going on if you want the stock to have a certain flavor. (The rich flavor comes from the bones so don't be afraid to put bones with no meat in the pot)
- After about an hour (you can't over them though) pour the entire pot through a strainer...you will just have chicken stock at this point
- Then in the strainer separate the meat from the bones...it helps if you let it cool for about 15 minutes (or just run some cold water over the bones and meat to cool them down quickly).
There you have it!!! My $8 chicken challenge that yielded 4 delicious, easy to make meals (not to mention several lunches thanks to the leftovers!!!)!!!! If you take the challenge let me know what meals you came up with!!!! I LOVE a good challenge!!! It really encourages me to explore in the kitchen so if you have a challenge you'd love to take let me know!!! I'm game!!! I'm looking for something new to do!
