Let’s talk about store bought rotisserie chicken. Is there anything more convenient? But what do you do with the carcass when you’re done? Read below about getting the most use out of a chicken carcass. Once you’ve picked all the chicken off that you want, just throw those bones in a kettle, cover it with water, and add some carrots, onions and a Bayleaf. Let that simmer for an hour on medium heat. What do you get? An awesome broth for soups or sauces. In this case I continued to boil the broth until it was really rich and concentrated. I ran it through a strainer to remove all the bones and cooked aromatics and then poured that over the chicken and vegetables for shepherds pie. It’s the easiest thing to do and is a great way to get more mileage out of that roasted chicken.
