Water in which my chicken cooked

Sorry, I don't know what it's called, as I'm very new to real cooking.
I cooked some skin/boneless chicken breast in an inch of water with salt, pepper in the oven. And after taking the chicken breast out, I ended up with a yellow-ish liquid.

What can I do with it?
I have about a cup and half.

Oh and if any could tell me what it's called so I can google more recipes :)

  1. Consider it a very, very, VERY diluted chicken broth.

    You could conceivably reserve it for cooking rice, risotto, or using it stretch out leftover soup and stews. Could also use it in sauces and gravies if you so choose.

      Cooking rice! Good idea! I'll use it for my quinoa tomorrow :)
      Thank you

    2. Next time you cook the chicken chop a piece up and add some veggies and noodles to make chicken soup or chicken chili. You can use it for your water when cooking rice or you could pour it over cooked pasta or make a chicken gravy or for cooking some veggies in it. It's chicken broth. You could add garlic powder and other seasonings too.
