Hi everyone. I am new to posting but have been lurking awhile. I was wondering if you all could help me make some chicken broth. I have 10 pounds of chicken quarters that I want to be able to pick off the meat to freeze for later meals and also get a broth out of it. I have been searching for directions on how to make broth, but I usually just see it made with bones. Can I make the broth while at the same time boiling the meat to pick for later use? How would I do this? I would really appreciate any tips you all can give.
Thanks so much!
ETA: I can use crockpot or stock pot, whichever is easier.
I think folks who make stock generally leave meat on bones or use meaty bones like wings. Maybe someone else will chime in here.
Put in the chicken with some carrots, celery (I use leaves and all), a halved onion and some bay leaves...cover with water and simmer the daylights out of it. Then strain the stock, pick the chicken off the bones (it will be falling off) and then - voila! you have stock and nicely tender chicken meat to use as you wish. :)
I usually use a crockpot.....
