    Erm you have to actualy use the left over chicken to make stock which defeats the object usually. If i were you next time you go shopping go buy a tub of Chicken gravy granuals. and then just make them up as and when.

    If not it's boiling the bones and juices in a pan for about an hour.

    proper chicken stock is..
    coupleof roughly diced celery, carrots and onion
    chicken bones and giblets

    saute bones till brown add giblets and veg and cook till soft, add a little water to lift the caramised bites off the bottom of the pan. add amount half the amount of water ontop of how much stock you want(1 and a half litres for a litre etc) and simmer until its reduced to the amout you want. skim any oil or scum off the top with a spoon and strain a couple of times.

    or

    buy chicken stock powder, its better than cubes :)
