     Are you looking for an easy and inexpensive chicken stock recipe?

    Ok back to the recipe at hand…

    Over the past few months, I tried several recipes for chicken stock.  After some tweaking and simplifying, I settled on a method that works for me.  This should be enough to make 4 qts.

    • 3 large white onions, halved
    • 4 celery stalks, chopped
    • 4 carrots, chopped
    • 1 Tbsp dried thyme
    • 1 tsp black pepper

    Directions:

    1. Place the chicken in a large stock pot and cover with cold water.  Heat on high.
    2. Add vegetables and bring to a boil.
    3. Simmer for 2 hours, adding more water when/if necessary.
    4. Remove the chicken (place in a bag and chill in the fridge, can be used later for soup), and pour the stock through a sieve  to remove the vegetables/spices.
    5. Chill the stock in the refrigerator.
    6. Once cold, skim the fat from the top.
