Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°.

Place chicken in a broiler pan or shallow roasting pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 425° for 1 hour, turning thighs after 30 minutes.

Add remaining 10 cups cold water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 2 hours; skim surface occasionally, discarding foam.

Step 4

Strain stock through a fine sieve lined with cheesecloth or a thin cotton dish towel into a large bowl; discard solids. Cool stock to room temperature. Cover and chill stock for 8 hours or overnight.

Step 5

Skim solidified fat from surface of stock, and discard. Place stock in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until syrupy and reduced to 6 tablespoons (about 1 hour and 15 minutes), skimming foam as needed.

an awesome little flavor packet! it takes time, but most definitely worth the effort! I froze the results in 1 tbsp ice cube trays and have used it in many recipes. I'll keep a supply on hand always!
