Rich Chicken Stock

  • TOTAL TIME: 2 HRS
  • SERVINGS: 8 cups
  • HEALTHY
  • MAKE-AHEAD

This chicken stock is terrific to use in soups, stews, dressings and stuffings, but it's so flavorful that it can even be sipped.

  1. One 3-pound chicken, quartered or left whole
  2. 4 quarts water
  3. 1 large onion, quartered
  4. 2 large carrots, chopped
  5. 2 celery ribs, chopped
  6. 6 parsley sprigs
  7. 2 thyme sprigs
  8. 1 bay leaf
  9. 1 teaspoon black peppercorns
  10. Salt
  1. Combine all of the ingredients except the salt in a large stockpot. Cover partially and simmer over very low heat for about 1 hour and 30 minutes, skimming the surface of the stock as necessary.
  2. Strain the stock into a large bowl and rinse out the pot; reserve the chicken for another use. Return the stock to the pot and boil over moderately high heat until reduced to 8 cups, 30 minutes longer. Season with salt.
Make Ahead The stock can be refrigerated for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 1 month.
