    Default chicken question

    I bought a whole chicken instead of a already cut up chicken b/c
    whole chickens were on sale for 49c a lb.
    I tried to cut up the chicken as best as I could following a
    diagram. I really had trouble with it.
    Well after I put the cut up chicken in a plastic bag w buttermilk to
    marinate overnight for tomorrow's fried chicken. I noticed I had
    chicken bones and liver/neck parts still on the cutting board. I put
    them in a separate bag instead of throwing them out.
    Is there anything I could do with them gravy, chicken stock etc
    I don't have much experience with using whole chickens or making
    homemade stock or gravy so dont please be kind in your replies.

    Here's a recipe for chicken broth made in the crock pot. It's from the Better
    Homes and Gardens cookbook. I prefer it to doing it on the stove since I don't
    have to watch it while it simmers. - Wendy

    CHICKEN BROTH

    2 1/2 lbs bony chicken pieces
    3 stalks celery with leaves, cut up
    2 carrots, cut up
    1 large onion, cut up
    2 sprigs fresh parsley ( I use about 1 Tbsp dried)
    1/2 tsp dried thyme, sage, or basil
    2 bay leaves
    1 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp pepper
    4 cups water

    Put ingredients in 4 quart crock pot in order listed. Cook on low for 8 to 10
    hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours. When cool enough to handle, strain broth.
    Discard the vegetables. If desired, separate meat from bones. Makes about 5
    1/2 cups broth and 2 1/2 cups meat. Refrigerated broth keeps up to 3 days or
    can be frozen for up to six months.

    Tie them into a cheesecloth bag & make some chicken stock with them. The
    marrow from those bony pieces will make great stock - I generally add the
    chicken back - also. The liver & other guts - I hate - so I cook them up with
    a bit of water & give them to the dog. She loves them

    You can boil the bones and liver gizzards, heart etc. You can also hard boil
    and egg or two at the same time. Crape all the meat off the bone and chop all
    the meat into fine dice and do the same to the hard boiled egg. You can use
    the meat, egg and broth to make a nice giblet gravy. Just thicken with some
    flour or cornstarch.

    You could also just cook the meat and bones and make a nice broth to use for
    later or for cream gravy.
