Chicken Stock

Chicken Stock Recipe by Chef Ankit

Chicken stock is a nutritious, flavorful, aromatic liquid made of chicken bones cooked for long duration on simmer heat. It is used as a base for soups, stews, sauces and gravies. It tends to have a fuller mouth feel and richer flavor, due to the gelatin released by long-simmering bones. It is a very useful ingredient that brings extra flavor to the recipe.
