I don't regularly make my own chicken stock, but this video clarified how to do it. I didn't realize I need to skim the stock as it cooks to keep it from getting cloudy. Thanks for the great info!

There's no need to wash the meat first. The blood cooks and congeals, and rises to the top, and is then skimmed off. I don't think they're definition of broth is right either. I looked up both "stock" and "broth" in a number of sources, and they all differ slightly. None of them, however, match what the video says. Basically, stock is the clear liquid from meat and/or vegetables and/or seasonings cooked in water for some time then strained. Broth is merely the flavorful liquid in which meat and/or vegetables have been cooked -- it isn't necessarily cooked for a long time nor is it necessarily strained. You don't need to then add spices and seasonings to make it "broth." It's already broth.
