Can I Use Rotisserie Chicken to Make Stock?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Q: I am wondering how the general public feels about using the bones left over from a store-bought rotisserie chicken to make stock? The left side of my brain thinks it makes perfect sense, but the right side is a little freaked out for some reason. Any feedback?

Editor: I’ve never made stock with a rotisserie chicken, but that doesn’t mean it can’t or shouldn’t be done. A while back, Dana shared her experience with truly getting her money’s worth (and then some) with a rotisserie chicken, which included making soup.

Readers, what are your thoughts on this? Have you ever made stock with the bones from a rotisserie chicken?
