So, what is chicken stock?

Chicken stock is a flavorful liquid made by simmering chicken bones, vegetables, and herbs in water for several hours. This ingredient is a staple in many kitchens around the world due to its versatility and ability to enhance the flavor of countless dishes. It adds depth and richness to soups, stews, sauces, gravies, and risottos, among other things. Chicken stock is also a key component in classic dishes like chicken noodle soup and coq au vin. Additionally, it can be used as a base for cooking grains and legumes, providing an extra layer of flavor to otherwise plain dishes. Whether homemade or store-bought, chicken stock is an essential ingredient for any home cook or professional chef.
