FYI - attractively photographing chicken frames (they have NO good side!) is SO difficult...So imagine this delicious chicken - without the meat: presto. Chicken Frames.

Chicken Frames are the go-to basic of any soup staple. They are the soft bones and cartilage left after a chicken is boned out, with some lean meat on them.

They make AMAZING stocks and broths that form the basis of soups, stews, casseroles and braises.

The stock recipe below is delicious!
