How To Make : Chicken Stock

As we know chicken stock is one of regular stock that we often use for cooking. There's lot's of stock block or any other kind of stock sell at the market now days, but the best thing to have is when we make it from scratch.

One of my friend asking me how to make a chicken stock, & as we see lot's of people "afraid" to make a homemade chicken stock because the cooking process often takes times.
My tips is :
1. try to make a stock first while we prepare the ingredients for the dish that we plan to make that day. So when our dishes is ready to cook, our stock is ready as well.
2. Makes stock for 2-3 days, store at refrigerator.
3. Always planning the menu for 2-3 days, and try to use the same stock for 3 days menu. 

That way, there no stock will be unused & saved cooking time ;) 

Ingredients :
  • 1 kg Chicken Bone
  • 1 medium Onion, cut 4 part
  • 1 large Carrot, slice
  • 1 cloves garlic, slice
  • 1 Green Onion, slice
  • 2 Celery Stick, slice
  • 2 Bayleaf
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg ( optional )
  • 2 Cloves ( optional )
  • 1 tsp Rosemary
  • 1 tsp Thyme
  • 3000 ml water

    Well... u did make a stock - japanese stock , that's what u use in ur cooking right... hehe he
    chicken stock is a common thing in Indonesia for making soup, but most of them "doesn't know" how to makes a great stock - they use to make in a traditional way & sometimes it's makes the soup looks & taste "bored"
    so I'm try to add something here & there :)

  5. That canned stuff can't even compare to homemade stock! My husband made some green chile stew last weekend and politely asked me to make some chicken stock for it. :) Great method for making stock!
