Homemade brown chicken stock can be a nice alternative to the regular chicken stock, which you can use for flavored soups, stews, gravies, or anything of your choice. It takes a little longer to prepare the stock, but ultimately it's quite worthy of your effort. Watch the video and learn the details.


Carrot 1 Medium , quartered
Onion 2 Medium , quartered
Chicken 2 1/2 Pound ((parts and bones))
Cracked black pepper 1 Teaspoon ((or to taste))

6) Transfer the browned bits and water into the stockpot containing the roasted chicken and vegetables.

7) Pour enough water into the stockpot to cover the chicken bones.

8) Cover the pot and simmer over a medium-low heat for about 60 to 90 minutes.
