As you readers have seen better I have done a blog on rendering down pork fat. Well after a little research I realized that you can do the same with left over chicken parts. Everything from the skin to the white fat that is trimmed off the chicken when you buy prepared breasts.
Since we buy the cheapest parts you can find generally I have a lot of little bits of meat etc left on the bones. I toss the skin, the fat and the bones into my crockpot to cook off the meat. After straining the meat and bones out of the sauce/soupy parts you can just pour it into a clean, recycled jar, let cool and then place in your frig for use with stir fries and simmered dishes. It works great as a base for sauces too.
