Chicken is one of the less expensive meats and everyone here likes it, so it's a frequent meal at our house. The grill is my favorite way to cook during the summer, but you can only have grilled chicken so many times! For a change of pace or during the cooler weather (like the freezing temps heading my way next week), I break out the slow cooker. Slow Cooker Chicken recipes are so versatile. Chicken pasta, sandwiches, soups, stews, chili – the possibilities are endless!
To save time and money, watch for great deals on chicken. Learn how to cut a whole chicken into the parts you need (I'm working on a YouTube tutorial for you) so you get the best bang for your buck by making bone broth with the carcass & veggie scraps. Try experimenting with using different parts of the chicken in your favorite recipes. I normally use breasts in my dump chicken recipes, but you can use hindquarters (I often find these on sale as low as $0.39/lb) or even try using turkey instead! Turkey normally goes on sale around Thanksgiving, so this is the perfect time to stock up on it & you can use turkey in most chicken recipes without a noticeable difference.
