1

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

2

Place the chicken and onion in a roasting pan large enough to hold them without crowding; drizzle with the oil and season well with salt and ground pepper. Roast for 40 minutes or until the skin on the chicken is golden brown.

3

Combine the roasted chicken, carrots and onion with the peppercorns, bay leaf, parsley and celery in a large stockpot. Add enough cold water to cover and bring to a boil over a high heat, then reduce the heat to low, partially cover and cook for about 2 hours or until the stock has developed a strong chicken flavour. If the flavour is a little weak, uncover and cook over medium heat for another 15 to 30 minutes.

4

Strain into another pan or bowl and allow to cool. If using later, refrigerate once at room temperature. Remove any meat that is still left on the chicken and add to the stock or keep for another use. There will also be some chicken stock left over.
