Pat, this is great! I used powdered stock, but will make my own for this next time-I think it would take it to another level. I also used 6 lovely legs which I threw in whole for about 40 minutes, then fished them out and took the meat off the bones. I gave this a good grinding of black pepper, but can't think of anything else you could do to improve it.
