Once you’ve simmered the chicken wings and strained the stock, leave the wings to cool, then strip them of their meat. There won’t be a huge amount, but it’s good for curries or soup.
Make a simpler but less intense gravy from the juices left in the roasting tin. Stir in a little flour, cook for 2-3 min, then simmer with some wine and a good splash of stock. Reduce to desired thickness, season, then strain and serve.
Make the gravy and freeze in sealed containers for up to 3 months. Defrost and heat when ready to serve.
