How to Make Stock From a Roast Chicken Carcass

TheKlutzyCook's picture
TV Chef Ben O'Donoghue shows how to make full use of a roast chicken by using the carcass and bones to make a great chicken stock. As he explains, we waste a lot of food (and money) in the kitchen and this is a great way of reducing that waste.
  Leftover roast chicken carcass and bones 1 Medium
  Tomato 1 Medium, cut into wedges
  Onion 1 Small, cut into wedges
  Celery stick 1 Large, cut into chunks
  Parsley sprigs 5 Medium ((to taste))
  Water 1 Liter ((enough to cover the ingredients))

1. Into a nice deep pot, put together all ingredients and cover with water; bring to a boil.
2. Reduce to a simmer and let bubble away for 45 minutes to an hour.
3. Turn the heat off and let the stock cool down.

4. Strain it into a jug or container and freeze or put into the refrigerator if you will be using it in 3-4 days.
