I have my own stand-by recipe for chicken stock, but am always open to trying others, too! There's nothing like variety when it comes to cooking! Followed your recipe right on down & I can tell you right now that I'll be making this one again & again, for sure! The stock it makes is wonderfully flavorful! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
