How else can I make use of chicken stock other than the obvious, chicken soup? Many thanks!

Here's a favorite recipe of mine that uses chicken broth (but of course you can substitute stock). It comes from http://www.allrecipes.com.
I add a can of diced green chilies for an extra kick.
Turkey Bowtie Skillet
1/2 pound ground turkey breast
1 1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil
3/4 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
2 cups uncooked bow tie pasta
1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
1 tablespoon vinegar
3/4 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt (optional)
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
In a large skillet or Dutch oven, brown turkey in oil.
Add celery, onion, green pepper and garlic; cook until vegetables are tender. Remove the turkey and vegetables with a slotted spoon and keep warm.
Add broth to the pan; bring to a boil. Add pasta; cook for 10 minutes or until tender.
I use it to cook rice in when I'm having chicken for dinner. It's also good to cook potatoes for mashed potatoes. I make very good chicken pot pie and use it for that. I also have a recipe for a chicken & rice casserole that uses it.
Actually chicken stock can be used in place of water for most savoury recipes. I poach fish in stock, cook veggies in stock and I've even been known to use it to make whipped potatoes instead of milk or cream.
I use chicken stock or broth to simmer chicken breast. I use a quart of stock, 3 raw garlic cloves, several tablespoons of fresh thyme. Bring to a simmer add boneless, skinless chicken breast and cook at the simmer for 20 minutes. Turn off the heat and let cool in the stock.
