Ah, chicken stock. You always SEEM like such a good idea to really stretch my grocery dollar ... but, when faced with a carcass after a lovely roast chicken dinner, fear compels me to toss it. But I'm making a resolution: No more of this. I researched chicken stock (and chicken broth) and it really doesn't seem all that bad.
For starters, a definition: According to the BigOven Food Glossary, chicken stock is "a heavily concentrated reduction of bones and bony parts along with a lesser (if any) amount of breasts, thighs, and legs."
This is not to be confused with chicken broth, which, alternatively, is made more from meat (per those culinary geniuses at the Food Network).
