Next on my list for the freezer are several chicken dishes. To prepare for the chicken dishes I cooked chicken/made broth today. I purchased 2 cut up fryer chickens (approximately 8 lbs total). This morning I took the chicken and put it in my large stock pot with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Then I covered the chicken with water. I boiled the chicken on medium high heat for approximatively 4 hours - until the chicken falls off the bone.
Once the chicken has cooked for a while I use a strainer and get all the chicken and bones separated from the broth. Store the broth for later use. Remove all chicken from bones, store for use in recipes.
