Choose chicken stock or stock procedure. When well cooked, transfer the chicken out. Now, you can directly. Or re-heat the chicken stock to remove the extra water off and you will have more concentrated stock.
  3. When cooled, there will be a layer of fat floating on the surface. If you are on a diet, you can remove it but it is better to keep it for a better flavor.
