very tough chicken, now what?

roasted a chicken purchased by someone else last night and it was pretty much inedible because of the very tough meat and skin. i suspect that perhaps this was not meant to be roasted at all but meant more for stewing. i mean... it was purchased in china town and i noticed a piece of egg shell near the butt... so perhaps an old egg laying chicken?

so now the question is.... what do i do?

easy answer would be to feed it to the dog but i'm hoping i can salvage this myself. i was thinking of a chicken stock, but anything more interesting? it seems too tough to even make a decent chicken salad out of it. could i perhaps stew it to break it down even though it's already fully cooked?
