BASIC CHICKEN STOCK

When I need a chicken stock that doesn’t taste too Asian or Americanized, I like to make this stock. It’s versatile cause I can use it for whatever recipes that call for chicken stock and making your own homemade stock just has a deeper flavor profile than the canned or boxed stuff. If I’m not using the stock immediately, I like to freeze them in quart sized deli cups and just run them under some hot water to release them from the deli cups before I use them in my recipes.
