Homemade Chicken Stock
I can't believe I've never made this before! It's so simple and saves so much money and energy. Make a whole chicken in the slow cooker, for dinner, leaving all the juices and bones in the slow cooker. Add 1 onion, roughly chopped, 2 whole, cut-up carrots, 2 pieces of celery, roughly chopped, and fresh parsley, thyme, and salt and pepper. Fill slow cooker to the top with water, leaving about an inch at the top. Don't worry if you don't have all the ingredients. Cook it over night, or start it the next morning on LOW heat. Strain through a fine sieve into containers for the fridge or freezer. Makes about 8 cups for future recipes! So easy! I hope you enjoy!
