Homemade chicken stock is simply the best. It is way cheaper and healthier than a stock cube or the ones from a tetra pak. It also allows you to dictate terms with the flavours you would love to see in your recipes. Most importantly the curries.
While brewing your homemade chicken stock, make sure to use the boniest of cuts with skin on. Fat rendered from the skin and bones make the stock exceptional. Do not add any salt to the stock as it will improve the versatility of the stock. The recipes that you will use the chicken stock in, will any way require salt.
