I'm a list maker. Oh yes, I make a list for everything.
We always have a list going for the grocery store, Target, etc. And I abbreviate most everything. Rotisserie Chicken is "rot chick". Now my story:
Recently I saw a bit on the Today show, or maybe it was the Food network, not sure, anyway it was about using those rotisserie chickens. I mean using the whole thing. What? I usually pick it clean and toss it out. You know you do too, come on, admit it. Well today I did something with the, um, remains. I've been calling it the "carcass" but my husband gets visions of buzzards and road kill when I do, so I'm using a more "tasteful" word. (Pun intended.)
I took the remains, threw it in a stock pot along with a couple big carrots, some celery (leaves and all...good flavor there, you know) and a couple onions (peeled, and chopped in half). Then I threw in a couple bay leaves, a couple rosemary sprigs (from my garden), S & P, garlic, saffron, a splash or two of worcestershire and the kitchen sink. Ok, maybe not the kitchen sink.
Brought the whole brew to a boil, dropped it back to a simmer and covered it, letting it cook for an hour or so. I pulled out the big chunks and strained the rest...Now I have wonderful home made stock to make chicken soup tonight.
Give it a try and let me know how it goes!
