Chicken Soup – Using Left Over Chicken
July 31, 2012
I purchased an organic free range chicken on sale last week and made three meals (two family meals and a children’s meal) using the whole bird. It was a small chicken at just over 1 kg. We ate a variety of meals at a low cost, with no wastage.
I have only recently been using this type of method when buying chicken and I find it works well. I had previously purchased the cut of the bird that I required for a recipe. Purchasing a whole bird means I am more creative with my recipes and the cost of the meal is lower.
Do you buy and use a whole bird? I would love to hear what you make.
The meals that I made were:
I segmented the chicken raw and allocated it to the meals I had planned, If you chose to roast the chook you could use the carcass in the same way I have outlined in this recipe and add the left over roast chicken meat at the end.
Do you buy a whole chicken or buy it in the pieces you need for a recipe?
