Quick chicken stock

tags: | |

A recipe calls for homemade stock, but you don’t have all day to boil the bones of a flightless fowl. What’s a cook to do? Make some in a hurry. Fortunately it’s easy and takes only an hour or two. Best of all you can snack on some boiled chicken when you are done.


  • 4 chicken thighs, I recommend air-chilled
  • 6-8 cups water
  • A few pinches of salt


  • Large pot


  1. Pour the water into a pot, add the chicken and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat to medium. Cover and simmer at a low boil for at least one hour.
  3. Add a few pinches of salt to bring out the flavor.
