Chicken Stock Recipe. A handy and flavoursome stock that can be used in a variety of dishes. Sample our Chicken Stock recipe.

  • Serves:
  • Makes 2,5 litres
  • Preparation Time:
  • 10 minutes
  • Cooking Time:
  • 2 hours 30 minutes

You will need

  • 1 kg chicken leftovers
  • 3 ½ ltr water
  • 1 large white onion
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 1 large leek
  • 3 large celery
  • 5 medium button mushrooms
  • A handful of parsley
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp whole black pepper
  • A large pot
  • A cutting knife
  • A chopping board
  • A strainer
  • A table spoon
  1. Step 1: Clean the chicken. Take your chicken leftovers and remove any excess fat and skin. Don’t forget that it is very important to thoroughly clean all utensils afterwards.
  2. Step 2: Put in casserole dish. Make sure that your pot is large enough for 5 litres of liquid.
  3. Step 3: Fill with water. Pour 3.5 litres of cold water over the chicken and start bringing to the boil.
  4. Step 4: Chop the vegetables. In the meantime roughly chop up all the vegetables except for the parsley which will provide more flavour unchopped. It is unimportant how you cut up the rest of your ingredients as they will all be strained out of the stock.
  5. Step 5: Discard impurities. As the chicken starts to boil, foam and grease will rise to the surface – skim these impurities out and lower the heat on your oven to leave the liquid simmering.
  6. Step 6: Add all vegetables. Now is the time to add your vegetables into the slowly bubbling pot. Leave the stock cooking like this for between 1.5 and 2 hours. 
  7. Step 7: Strain the stock. After it is cooked pour the liquid through a strainer into a pouring jug and leave to cool down to room temperature.
  8. VIDEOJUG TIP; Between 4 and 60 degrees there is a danger zone where germs can breed. Why not bring the temperature of your chicken stock down quickly by placing it inside a bowl of ice cubes?
  9. Step 8: Put in fridge. Chicken stock is very versatile. It is useful to always have it handy in the kitchen as it can be used for a variety of dishes.

             Once it has cooled down, cover and place in your fridge where it will                    keep for up to 4 days or in the freezer, where it will taste delicious for                  up to 2 months.
