I hope this doesn't sound dumb, but do you throw away all of the chicken meat once the stock is ready?

PLEASE NOTE: If you don't have fresh dill sprigs, substitute 1/4 tsp dried dill for each sprig (5 tsp in this recipe). If you don't have fresh thyme, substitute 1/2 tsp dried thyme per sprig (2 1/2 Tbsp in this recipe). That info wasn't easy for me to find!<br/><br/>Delicious! Best chicken broth recipe I have tried yet... no need to search any more. Yum! I used a rotisserrie chicken from Costco. I removed 3 cups of meat before throwing in the chicken. It made about 17 cups of broth after simmering 4 hours. I tried to press as much liquid as possible from the mass of solids. It just has a great flavor. Thanks for a great recipe. (by the way I didn't use parsnips only because I didn't have any on hand... and since it's optional, but I'd love to try it with parsnips).

Awesome!! I didn't have as much chicken, I was just using some neck and other leftover pieces so I cut this recipe down a little bit. I love all the wonderful flavors that the herbs give this stock!! Since I didn't have as much, I cut the cooking time in half as well. I am going to wait to strain the stock until before use to keep all the good flavors melding. Thanks for posting, I love Barefoot Contessa recipes!!!
