I know this is so simple it seems silly to write a recipe for it; however, I've been cooking for a family of 9 for over 25 years now, and I've thrown away many rotisserie chicken carcasses before it dawned on me that I could save $1.50 per quart by just taking a few minutes of my time. It makes the cost of our dinner of roasted chicken almost pay for itself
Can be prepared in crockpot.
I let the broth cool just a bit, then strain it and use a funnel to fill quart mason jars, tighten lids, then store for a week or so in my refrigerator.

When I purchase a rotisserie chicken, I strip the meat from the bones and use the bones and non-meaty part of the chicken wings to make chicken broth for my next batch of chicken soup, some of which I freeze in ice cube trays for a quick cup-of-soup.

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?
