Next time you have a roast chicken for dinner, be sure to save the leftover carcass, bones and scraps to make chicken stock.

It is way tastier than the stock you buy in the store, and super easy to make in a slow cooker.

Here are some pictures of the process.

Roast chicken bones, carcass and scraps ready for making stock.


Roast chicken leftovers in slow cooker lined with cheese cloth.


Be sure to fill the slow cooker up with lots of roast chicken scraps and vegetables for a more flavorful stock.


Stock after 12 hours.


Clear stock left after pulling cheesecloth, no need to strain.


I have more pics of making stock and a recipe here.

I love my making my own stock! I don't use fresh veggies, though, I save all of my veggie scraps in the freezer. Like the potato peels and stems from bell peppers and stuff. And corn cobs! It's how I make myself feel better about throwing all that stuff away instead of in my compost. And I never have to buy stuff for stock or stock itself: it's always on hand! And it's so useful. I don't use water when I make stuff like rice because using chicken stock makes it taste so much better.

I do mine in a stock pot and I get about 20 cups (more or less) each time, every 2 months or so. I freeze them in 1 cup increments in Snack sized ziplock baggies. I sure do love the way my house smells when I make stock.

What a great idea! I save the ham's bone to flavor my chicken soup, can I make stock out of a ham's bone ?

The cheesecloth idea is brilliant! Thanks!

And domesticmamma: yep, you sure can! I use it for cooking beans (both soups and for rancher beans), and also for making Norwegian potato dumplings (potat klub). Great stuff, and it "de-salts" the bones enough so that I can let my dog have 'em! Smiley

We make our own stock too, but have not thought of putting the whole mess in cheesecloth. That would save so much frustration when trying to pour off the stock.  Thank you for the brilliant idea!

I do the same thing. I keep a bag in my freezer that I toss my veggie scraps, and another for leftover roast chicken bones, wing tips and such. When the bags get full I make stock. I also find using 2 roast chicken leftovers makes a stronger flavored stock.
