The other day I had a real craving for chicken. We didn’t raise any ourselves last summer so I’ve been hoarding what I have, but after several days of wanting to eat chicken I took one out and thawed it. It was probably a 7 pound oven roaster I cut it into: breast, leg quarters, back and wings and we had the following meals:
Day 1: Breast and leg quarters roasted, with spices and served with rice and other vegetables. I also made broth from the neck, back and wings.
Day 2: Casserole made from pasta, the gravy from the previous night, about a cup of picked chicken and frozen green beans. We ate this for lunch and dinner.
Day 3: I had more of the breast meat with some snow peas for lunch.
Day 4: Tonight I’m taking the broth and whatever leftover meat there is and making a Mexican Chicken to go on rice. Lots of garlic, and cilantro as well as black beans and peppers.
If I don’t use all of the leftovers tonight we’ll probably finish by making a risotto.Pin It
