Kroger has split chicken breast on sale for $0.99 per pound. That's 99 cents a pound, you know. The split chicken breast has the skin on and the rib bones.
Try this. Throw three to four in a five quart pot skin side down. Brown them and add a couple quarts of water. Simmer for a couple of hours. Add celery, onions and carrots. Add whatever you like at this point. I never add salt. I use bouillon in all my stocks and sauces. Add a couple tablespoons of white vinegar, a little sugar and cayenne. Simmer for an hour. Add a can of corn, a can of water chestnuts, a can of bamboo shoot, and whatever else suits your fancy. Add cilantro at the end. This should yield you about five quarts of soup. I crush up fritos in mine as I'm eating it. You can skip the browsing. You can add rice at the two hour process. You can pick out the skin and bones or leave them in.
