Apparently I was quite remiss in not taking portraits of the many meals that this chicken has provided, but here is a list of what it has given us so far, and to come. Each was two servings, of course.
Roast chicken, Potatoes, Broccoli
Chicken Cacciatore, Angel Hair, and Cabbage
Chicken Stir Fry (pictured above)
Chicken and Ham Panini Sandwiches
Last night, we had (Gary) the cacciatore and (Judie) the stir fry portions that were still left. There is some of the stir fry veggies to put into the soup.
Tonight I am BBQ’ing another batch of the meat to serve with barley and a zucchini and onion melange.
Tomorrow’s lunch will likely be a club sandwich of the chicken, Havarti cheese, and assorted other accompaniments.
After dinner tonight, I will strip off whatever meat is left for the club sandwich and plop the carcass into the Crock-Pot so that it can spend the night making bone broth.
There will be yet more meat to take off the bones, and it will be used to make a hearty chicken noodle, vegetable soup.
So – what do you think? Did we get our money’s worth? ;->
Sounds like you had a 25# chicken! I don’t know if I’ve ever seen one that big before.
It was just a wee ounce or so over five pounds!
What I admire most is your ability to never waste any food or opportunity to create a fabulous meal.
Thanks. These did go down REAL easy! ;->. I’m fixing the panini even as we speak!
I love those hunks of broccoli in there.
Love it with chicken!
Your meals look like they were prepared by a master chef! And you can REALLY stretch a food budget! 🙂
I try to waste as little as possible. This particular chicken was very cooperative. ;->
