Making your own chicken stock is not only fun and rewarding, it’s also super easy and can save you money. Instructables user My Sisters Kitchen writes:

Chicken stock, SO easy to make, is the foundation of countless recipes. Everything from soup to pot pies to curries to chili to casseroles start with chicken stock. For years I bought cans of chicken stock at the grocery store.

Several years ago my father-in-law taught me how to make my own chicken stock and I’ve never looked back. For starters, I stopped having headaches every time I made a recipe that called for chicken stock! I also discovered that the homemade version of chicken stock simply has a richer, fuller taste than the store-bought version.

    After checking out the instructables site I still had a question. Were any herbs or spices used?
