I make this every couple of months to have chicken stock/broth on hand for recipes. I can use the cooked chicken for recipes, and all the sodium and preservatives are eliminated from my chicken stock. The smell in your house while this is cooking will make you hungry! It smells wonderful. For convenience, I freeze the stock into ice cube trays and then put them into freezer bags. 5 to 6 cubes is equal to one cup. The stock will be good in the freezer for about 6 months.
