Prepare to be impressed… homemade chicken stock is easier to make than you think!

It’s a great use for the leftover parts of roasted chicken, and it’s an amazing alternative to chemical-filled chicken stock from the store. Plus, you can freeze it for convenient future use!

This stock can be used as a flavorful base for all of your favorite recipes.

"This flavorful chicken stock will be a great base for all of my favorite soup recipes this winter."
