:o I can’t believe how high groceries are anymore. I buy whole chickens and cook them in my large crock pot (usually two of them). The first night, our family of four eats on one chicken plus sides. I then pick the meat off that chicken and refrigerate the other whole chicken. The next day, I add barbeque sauce and we have BBQ sandwiches for lunch. For dinner that night, I cut off filets from the second whole chicken and fry them up in a little butter with onions. Sometimes I’ll add some lemon pepper or other seasoning. I pick off the rest of the chicken and use in a casserole or to make chicken and dumplings etc.
If I catch them on sale, I can get a whole chicken for 2 or 3.00, so for around 6.00, I have meat for 4 meals. Not bad.
