Chicken stock from leftover chicken

    2 hours 10 min

    When you have leftovers from a whole chicken and/or all the parts you didn't use such as neck, heart, liver etc. don't throw them out, you can make a rich flavourful chicken stock from them. I freeze the stock, that way I have it handy whenever I need it.
