This is a terrific stock, very delicious and easy to make. I used it for chicken noodle soup and buns for dinner last night and everyone loved it. The rest went in the freezer for a later date. Thanks for posting! Made for Aussie Swap :)

This produces a really rich broth. Browning the bones adds the extra richness. (I have done a similar version by roasting the carcass and bones on a baking sheet until browned). I used the whole batch to make Chicken Soup With Asparagus and Rice. Thanks for this keeper (which is really easy to make)!

Made this up in no time, & was happy to have done the entire recipe, 'cause I've now restocked my frozen supply! Also used some of it right away for a chicken noodle soup & was very pleased with the results! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #26]
