After 1 hour, turn off the heat.  Let sit about 10 minutes.

With a mesh strainer over a glass bowl, begin to ladle the chicken stock pouring through the mesh strainer.

Avoid using a plastic bowl; unless you let the stock to cool to a much lower temperature.

Chicken Stock

Fresh Cajun Chicken Stock or Chicken Broth is essential for a flavorful gumbo, soup, stew, turkey dressings, sauces and much more.

If you think Chicken Stock is supposed to come from a box sitting on a shelf with a pop top lid, then you are mistaken.

Do you know what is in that box that allows it to sit on the self so long? One of the main ingredients is MSG (monosodium glutamate). In other words, a poisonous fake flavor enhancing substance that is made at a chemical factory instead of a real, natural food.

Anyway, making fresh chicken stock is so easy and freezable for later use. Give it a try in your Cajun recipes and you will taste the difference.

Ingredients for Homemade Chicken Stock

Any piece of the chicken (thighs, drumsticks, or breasts) with bones and skin on.
2 tablespoons Tony’s Creole Seasoning
1 tablespoon salt
1 onion – cut in quarters
Garlic – several whole cloves
3-4 Bay leaves
Also, if you have vegetable discards, throw those in also.
Large stockpot

Bring a large stockpot of water to a boil.

Toss in chicken, seasoning, onion, garlic, and bay leaves.

Boil for one hour.

With a mesh wire strainer, begin to pour out stock into bowls to allow to cool.

Once cooled, dip into plastic storage container. Freeze for later use.

When you need some stock, just thaw and there you go.

Question – What do I do with the leftover chicken?
