This recipe makes use of all the chicken bones left over from your roast chicken. It’s hearty, healthy, and easy. Don’t be daunted by the cooking time—90 percent of the time, it is left to simmer. Another plus: You can make a lot and freeze in individual containers. Just zap it in the microwave as needed.
