my chicken stock recipe Nik Sharma for @SFChronicle

My freezer invariably contains a bag or two of chicken stock stashed away in ziptop bags. I never know when the need might arise, perhaps as a base for a soup or to make a rice pilaf brimming with an extra punch of flavor. I’m not a fan of using “perfect” to describe recipes but this is the recipe that works for me and the one I go to most often. It’s aromatic and tastes of chicken. A stock is so much more than a collection of spices, chicken bits and veggies, it reflects who you are, where you’ve been and will be a good indicator of what spices and flavors you cherish the most.
