Chicken Stock Recipe

In a slow cooker add

3 pounds chicken wings

3 quarts water

2 chicken bouillon cubes

1 large onion,chopped

1 clove garlic, smashed

1 tsp salt

Cook on low 7-8 hours. Strain out chicken, onion and garlic. Stock is ready to use or place in the fridge for use the next day or in the freezer so you can just defrost when you are ready to use. I keep stock in my freezer on hand most of the time. If you don’t have time to make stock you can also use you favorite store bought stock. 🙂
