Microwave chicken stock

Based on Leites Culinaria but without the annoying adverts and converted for European units and microwaves. Works really well.

A large chicken will make four of these batches - around 28 minutes of time for enough stock for a week!

Ingredients for 1 batch

  • 70g cooked chicken bones and skin (from an old roast chicken)
  • 250ml cold water
  • 1/2 garlic clove
  • 10-15ml chopped vegetables, such as onion, carrots, or celery
  • 0.5ml white pepper and salt to taste, added after cooking


  1. Put everything listed in the ingredients into a big microwave jug.
  2. Cook on 1000W power for 7 minutes - stir halfway through to check it's OK, please.
  3. Stand for 2 minutes then strain and add the seasoning if required

If not using immediately, refridgerates well for up to five to seven days at 0C. Ensure it is completely cold before placing in fridge in a sealed container.

Or may be frozen.

If doubling amounts, remember to double the time as it's a microwave! 140g of bones and 500ml of water will be 14 minutes not 7.
