Need inspiration.

Have big pot of chicken stock preparing on the hob this evening that I'm making from left overs.
Any one wish to share they're own use for chicken stock?

Personally, I like to make some sort of soup with it.

One of my favorite chicken soups has all the standards in it i.e., carrots, onion, celery, but I also like to add cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, corn, and green beans.

Hey, we're thinking alike - I just told dh that even though the weather's hot (high 90s) I'm making chicken soup tomorrow. I just use green onions, garlic, chicken, s&p, carrots, celery, potatoes, parsnip, a little curry spice, and whatever herbs I'm growing get thrown in. (especially lots of italian parsley)

Other things with homemade chicken stock...I like to use it to cook my egg noodles in, so they are extra tasty. Then I cut the chicken into small pieces, and plate. The stock gets some butter, flour, cream, & pepper to make a chicken gravy to put over the noodles.

I also cook wild rice in chicken stock and feed it to my doggie whenever she's got a tummy ache (works every time!)

AND, don't forget you can cook couscous in it or tabbouleh. I use it for French Onion Soup too - use half chicken stock and half beef stock with a bit of Port and Burgundy thrown in - maybe just 1/4 cup each for pretty big stockpot full.

Did chicken soup just yesterday. I used KE's usual suspects plus some barley and egg noodles.
If you buy whole chicken and cut it yourself, chicken soup is tasty and inexpensive. Just save the backs, necks, etc...
One difference between a cook and a chef is that the cook mows the lawn, while the bread is rising.
