  • 2
    large onions, chopped
  • 5
    carots, peeled and sliced
  • 2
    leeks, washed and chopped
  • 4
    stalks celery, chopped with most of the leaves

    cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1
    leftover chicken carcass, skin removed with pan juices and 'bits'
  • 2
    fresh or dried bay leaves
  • 5
  • salt and milled pepper


Place chopped vegetables in a large pot.
Add carcass, any of the jellied pan juices and leftover meat, skin removed.
Add the bay leaves, sugar and seasoning and pour over stock.
Bring to the boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 1 1/2 hours.
Remove carcass, adjust seasoning, add parsley and cook for a further five minutes.
