Quick Chicken Stock
A reliable chicken stock recipe is always useful for your cooking repertoire. This quick version is a great base for soups, stews and ramen bowls.
If you're in a hurry and don't have the time to make chicken stock from scratch, cheat with this recipe.
|4||medium chicken breasts|
|1||large carrot, roughly chopped (no need to peel)|
|3||cloves garlic, crushed|
|1/2||onion, roughly chopped|
|5cm||knob ginger, skin on|
|3||spring onions, finely chopped|
1. Add the chicken breasts, carrot, garlic, onion, ginger, spring onions, and water to a medium-large pot.
2. Bring to the boil over a high heat. Turn down the heat to medium-low, and simmer for 1.5 hours.
3. Strain the stock through a colander, discarding any solids and saving the chicken for another use.
Storage: The quick chicken stock can be stored in the same way as the regular chicken stock. For easy portions, divide the stock among the compartments in an ice-cube tray, or into 240ml (8fl oz) serving sizes, before freezing.
