How to Make White Chicken Stock

The difference between a white chicken stock and a brown chicken stock is simple. White chicken stock is made by boiling chicken bones without roasting them first and brown chicken stock requires roasting the bones first.

Roasting bones first gives the brown chicken stock more dept of flavor and add some golden color to the stock. So why not just always use brown chicken stock if it has more flavor?

There are some very important white sauces including classic veloute sauce and sauce supreme that require using white chicken stock as a base. The white chicken stock is also milder in flavor and may be used when you don’t want a your sauce to overpower the flavor of the sauce.
