Chicken Broth

Now, let’s talk broth! Chicken broth can be used as a base for soups, stews, gravies and sauces. In this recipe we are substituting water for broth to add more flavor and depth. Chicken broth should definitely be a cupboard or freezer staple to have on hand. With it, you can easily turn leftover bits and bobs into dinner (or a snack!)  For some tasty recipe which use chicken stock, check out this Chicken Tortilla Soup or this Creamy Chicken Poppy Seed Casserole.
