If chicken is for dinner, consider buying a whole one. Roast it and you’ll likely have enough for two meals, then keep the bones and make stock. I spent $7.00 – got two meals and now have three healthy portions of chicken stock in the freezer for soup later. So easy. So much cheaper.
Make the most of what you roast
I got 3 chickens at the grocery store for $19. I roasted all three today (at the same time). The boys will delight in the wings and drummettes, I’ll carve off the rest – part of it I’ll use in meals this week and the rest of the meat I’ll freeze for pie or pasta recipes. Plus I’ll keep the bones to make stock – which can be used for soup and sauces. A tasty use of time and money.
