Super Simple Chicken Stock with Wing Tips

Chicken Wing Stock

I go through a LOT of chicken stock in my kitchen, so I like to make my own, and this simple chicken stock is my go to.

I discovered a few years back the those chicken wing-tips that I usually cut off the wings before cooking, have a near perfect ratio of skin to bone for making a rich, delicious stock.

I keep a zip-bag in the freezer and toss my wing tips in it whenever I cook a chicken, or chicken wings. About once a month, I’m usually ready to make a half-gallon batch of stock.

Note: If you don’t have the wing-tips, you can use the leftover carcass of a rotisserie or roasted chicken, instead.

Here’s the recipe…

Enjoy!

Simple Chicken Stock

  • 1 gallon water
  • 1 lb chicken wing tips
  • 2 Tbs. butter
  • 2 Tbs salt
  • 4 cloves chopped garlic
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 cups chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 tsp. black pepper

Note: You can customize your stock based on the recipe you plan to use it for, I made my last batch specifically for some roasted mushroom udon soup, so I also added 2 Tbs of Thai fish sauce, 1 cup of roasted mushrooms, star anise, and fresh cilantro to the stock.

You can throw this away, or (better) save to to fry with as you would butter. Jewish cooking calls this fat “schmaltz” and it makes the best scrambled eggs ever!

Stock will keep 2-3 days in the fridge, or several months in the freezer. I like to freeze it in ice-cube trays, so it’s ready in pre-portioned cubes when I need it.
