Apricot Bourbon Chicken

I always make homemade stock after I cook a whole chicken.  It just seems so wasteful to throw away all those nutrients!  Plus, it gives me one more day before I have to wash my crockpot!   😉

Typically I use the stock as a base for soup or as the liquid for cooking rice or quinoa.  Finding uses for slightly sweet stock is a bit more challenging.  This is how I used stock and meat from leftover Slow Cooker Apricot Chicken.  I imagine stock and chicken from Orange, Honey and Cumin Roasted Chicken would also work well in this recipe.
