How far can you stretch one chicken ? I have three ways :
1) First I roast it ... one meal. I save all the drippings for soup - refrigerate or freeze the drippings so that the fat goes to the top and take off once cooled.
2) Next - leftover's go in to a casserole, stir fry or for sandwiches
3) And best .... using the bones and drippings for a big pot of low fat healthy soup which will last for several meals ( throw in any combination of your favourite vegetables ie, onions, tomatoes, zucchini, kale, cabbage, garlic, carrots, tomatoes, beans, lentils herbs any left overs- ie rice/potatoes/grain, vegetable stock saved from various steamed vegetables from previous meals and frozen ) - see my Stone Soup post for ideas on making soup.
