Compound Garlic Butter

Compound Garlic Butter
The best flavors of a chicken come from the pieces most people prefer to toss. Rather than discard the bones, fat, and other perceived waste, I recommend preparing a chicken stock from scratch. This is perfect to put together as you prepare a different meal since you can toss all of the odd bits from those ingrediants, into your chicken broth stock pot.
