When I think about the dinner recipes for the upcoming cold winter days, there is always some kind of a soup that is going to keep us warm and satisfied. And what all the soups need is the good stock, or a broth, to bring together and maximize all the flavors that you are adding. So I have decided to share with you today the basic recipe for the chicken stock, that you can use in all sorts of soup and other recipes, and you can customize it by your liking. Isn’t that great? Now let’s get to it.

When it comes to making soups, most of the people usually use plain water to cook their veggies and meats, but if you use any kind of stock, you will get more flavor, and your soup is going to taste way better. There are many brands of store-bought chicken stocks, but after you make your own, you will never go back to the store-bought stuff.

Slow Cooker is the best for making Chicken Stock

Trust me, I have tried many recipes for making chicken stock on a stove top, or by using pressure-cooker. And no matter what I have tried, the flavors wasn’t just right. There was always something missing. Then I have figured out that I could try to cook my chicken stock in a slow cooker. I figured that the flavors will intensify because of the longer cooking time. And, I WAS RIGHT! I just couldn’t believe how flavorful and tasty was the chicken stock.

Since then I’ve never bought chicken stock again, nor I made it any other way. Slow cooker saved me! It is now the most used kitchen appliance in my house. I use it every week to cook different types of stock that I use in many recipes, and also to cook other delicious recipes, for example this wonderful Slow Cooker Goulash (check it out here!).

To make your homemade chicken stock, all you need is some basic ingredients and a slow cooker, put everything inside, and 10 hours later you have the most AMAZING chicken stock in the world.

Use any leftover chicken that you have. That mean DON’T throw away leftover bones when making chicken roast, you can make a wonderful chicken stock with them. I also like to leave the leftover chicken carcass after cutting up the whole chicken and use it to make the stock.
