I do that too! I don't know what kind of seasoning Costco uses on their chicken, but it is so good. I use the skin and bones and sometimes onions and simmer for an hour or so. It sure makes some good stock! I hate to throw anything away. I bought it, so I use it!
After reading the post about roasting the bones, I will try that next time, sounds good. Of course, roasting just about anything makes it better.
Have you ever bought one of those delicious seasoned roasted chickens from the supermarket? After the chicken meat was gone and picked clean; I mean really clean, what did you do with the rest of the bones, skin and stuff? I used to throw it away. What a WASTE! Ms. chicken gave her all for you (not that she had a choice) but I think we should do some justice for her sacrifice.
Put all of the chicken left-overs in a pot and add 2 quarts of water combined maybe with some canned chicken broth (your preference) and simmer for an hour or so until you get a perfectly seasoned broth. Add your own seasonings if you wish. Strain out all of the solids and freeze the resulting soup base and add to any chicken dish that calls for stock.
Bok, bok, good eating!

I just throw anything left (bones, skin, even the drumsticks from the boy's dinner) into my stockpot. I cover the carcass with water and add an onion (including skin), garlic, celery, carrots and spices. Yum! (04/15/2010)
Our GrandDoggie Sadie Belle wants me to tell you that it's also just the greatest for pouring over your doggie's food especially if you're feeding just dry dog food. If I were making it just for a pet, I'd leave out the onion as doggies are not supposed to have onion in any way. Don't know about kitties and onions, other than to say that I know for sure our Sir Catty-Kit wouldn't be caught dead eating an onion. LOL
Great tip.Sue. Thank you. (04/24/2010)
