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.
Reduce heat; stir in the tomatoes, vinegar, sugar, chili powder, garlic salt if desired and turkey mixture. Simmer for 10 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and parsley.
I use it to cook rice in when I'm having chicken for dinner. It's also good to cook potatoes for mashed potatoes.
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. It's very versatile in casseroles etc too.
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.
