Never buy chicken broth again!

Next time you think you have used all of your rotisserie chicken, like in the picture, think again!

Instead of just throwing it away, try boiling it in some water with a little salt, and make chicken broth!  It’s that easy.

After you’ve boiled the chicken, strain the broth into a freezer-safe container and freeze the broth until you’re ready to use it!

If you want to make a less fattening version of this broth, just refrigerate the broth for about an hour and skim the fat off the top.

    Funny, not 2 minutes before I got on here I was discussing with the spouse that I have a bag of backs in the freezer that I need to make into stock and you were already reminding me 🙂 Some people may think it’s odd but when we are breaking down whole chickens, which are always cheaper, we save the odd parts in a freezer bag and I make stock out of it, then freeze the stock in small plastic containers, pop them out and store them back in freezer bags till I need it.

    This is also how I use up the wilty carrots and celery and the odds and ends of onions in the fridge. Food recycling for the win!

    I roast the bones at about 450 for 20 minutes or so. It really helps the flavor!
