Making your own chicken broth/stock is something you should do a few times a year and freeze. It is healthier as it does not have sodium or any preservatives in it. It is cost effective as you can use it anytime a recipe calls for chicken broth/stock and it cuts down on your cooking time of the actual meat you boiled.
Tonight we were having bone in chicken breasts on the grill so I boiled them for 20 minutes before grilling them. I then put the stock into containers to freeze for whenever I need chicken stock or broth in a recipe. (these containers are from wonton soup at the chinese restaurant and they work great!!). I also use the stock to make a quick batch of chicken noodle soup whenever the mood strikes!! You can then refreeze the soup in the same cleaned containers.
So the next time you are having chicken, take a few extra minutes and make your own natural stock. It’s worth every penny saved!!
