I made the stock yesterday with two carcasses.

De-fatted it this morning, and added de-fatted pan drippings from my last roasted chicken. Added the carrots, celery, onions and some chopped Savoy cabbage, to fill it out.

Added 2 cut-up raw chicken breasts and about 3 cups cooked from my last roasted chicken.

Wow, is this good! Good thing, too, since I will be eating it for lunches all week! Hope I don't miss the noodles too much!
