You can make so many different things with this stock. It’s versatile, it’s good for you, and you can control the salt and keep out unnecessary ingredients and additives that are common in many commercially available chicken stocks and bouillon cubes (msg, modified food starch, a ton of things I cannot pronounce).

How can you store extra chicken stock?

I love to make extra stock and then freeze the rest. It keeps for a long time, and is so much tastier than any of the concentrates or boxed broths that are available out there.

You can freeze it in ice cube trays to add a little something to other dishes.

You can make homemade soups out of it like my creamy mushroom chicken with wild rice, or my Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup. It can even be a base for chicken gravy. The list goes on and on.

With this one chicken broth recipe, you can make several different meals.

Day 1, meal one, Traeger Roasted Chicken.

Traeger Grilled Chicken

Serve with mashed potatoes, stick-of-butter rice, or creamy noodles. Also a crisp green salad with my Greek Freak dressing, and the perfect grilled asparagus.

You could easily make a simple gravy from the drippings if you cook it in a roasting pan, or keep it easy and just eat the chicken plain. The Traeger grilled chicken is seasoned well enough that you don’t really even need gravy.

One way that we really enjoy eating this that’s a bit different is to make this with white rice, broccoli, and sweet chili sauce. Generally, you can find it in most any grocery store in the Asian foods section. It’s just spicy enough to keep me happy, but not too spicy to scare off the kids too much.

How to make Chicken Stock from a chicken carcass

Day 2, meal two, SOUP!

You can do chicken noodle soup and make the homemade noodles, or you can make any of the soups or recipes I’ve listed below.

This makes enough for a large, large batch of soup. Definitely enough for leftovers, to freeze, or just to make for a crowd.
