What can I substitute for brandy in this chicken recipe?

Hi AskMe, I need to make a chicken recipe that I've been given - it's a chicken stroganoff type thing. The recipe calls for 2Tbs of brandy. I don't have any brandy and I don't intend to buy some just to make this recipe. What can I substitute? I'm fine with alcohol, I'd just prefer a type I already own. [more inside]

Marinades for Chicken

Recently I've been buying Trader Joe's marinaded chicken tenders, and using the bag throughout the week to prepare stir-fries, fajitas, and other simple dishes for dinner. I really like having a marinade I can pull from for a quick meal, but I'm getting tired of the flavors that Trader Joe's offers. What are your favorite chicken marinades that I could start at the beginning of the week and use throughout the week to make dinner? My taste is pretty wide, but I'd prefer stuff that uses fairly common ingredients.

Help me actually achieve a good chicken stock

How can I actually make a good soup/general use stock? I feel like I've tried a whole bunch of different recipes and none have ever been better than Swanson's from a box. Seriously I've made it 15+ different times, both chicken and veal. I'm pretty handy in the kitchen and can do most everything else, but not this, help me! [more inside]

Inherited Chicken Bricks

Roommate moved out, I inherited four 15-month-old boneless, skinless chicken breasts in the freezer. I'm going to assume they won't taste optimal. Actually, I'm expecting them to not be very palatable to me without major work. What can I do to these chicken breasts to cover up any "old chicken" flavors and textures, without drying them out? Taking any and all ideas. [more inside]
