Although this recipe takes a little time to come together, the results are well worth it. Making homemade chicken broth is a great way to get more value from a whole roasted chicken and to use up excess vegetables. As an added bonus, the difference in flavor between homemade broth and store-bought varieties is undeniable.
For best results, use a large stock pot for this recipe. If you do not have one, use a large (6-quart or larger) Dutch oven or similar pot. If using a 6-quart pot for this recipe, stir more frequently to ensure exposed parts are submerged during the cooking process.
