I’ve never shared a homemade chicken stock recipe until now because before today, they've turned out mediocre. Not this one! It is so delicious!
Place the carrots, celery, onion, garlic, and bay leaves in the stockpot as well. Cover with water and add the bay leaves, salt, and pepper.
*My chicken was 5 pounds.
If desired, use roasted carrots, onions, and celery in the homemade chicken stock. Just combine with oil and place on a baking sheet. Roast in a 400 degree F oven.
