    This turns some folks off, but, if you have a real butcher nearby, you can get chicken feet for next to nothing and they make the very best chicken stock as well. Keep those recipes coming. Great thread.

    leswill, not chicken broth-liquid, not chicken bullion- whitch is cubes, chicken base is a powder that comes in a jar. When you try it come back and let me know if you liked it.
