Remove any decent bits of chicken from the carcass and put to one side. Gently sautee a chopped onion, chopped celery and carrot in a little butter until soft but not browned. Add this to a large stock pot, with the bones/carcass of the chicken, add water , lid and simmer for a couple of hours. Drain (reserving the liquid obviously) and throw bones etc away. Now decide what kind of soup you want to make with the stock. For a basic left over soup I chop the left over chicken, dice potato, celery, carrots, green beans, onion and add this too the stock. Kids love it and it is a meal in a bowl.

Another one is lemon grass, with the chicken, a bit of chilli and some coconut milk.

Otherrwise you can use the stock for all manner of soups and the chicken for sandwiches, rissotto, curry etc.
