I needed to cook some chicken once and instead of throwing it in the microwave I decided to boil it and use some leftover veggies out of the fridge. Not only did this make the most amazing chicken, but the stock is great and freezes wonderfully!

This chicken stock smells wonderful when cooking and is very tasty. I had 6 chicken breasts in the package, added more carrots and celery, used garlic powder instead of fresh, and added 10 peppercorns. I did need to add chicken bouillion to give it a bit more flavor for our taste. Made and reviewed for Random Recipe tag game.
