Chicken - Chicken

Fry’s Grocery store had whole chickens on sale for 88 cents a pound …. haven’t seen that price in years.  Unfortunately, all the birds were large, 5-7 pounds each.  Really roasters and not fryers.  So we bought a five pounder and had the butcher cut it in half for us.



Jim barbecued one half which we enjoyed for dinner that night.




Then I cut off the breast meat for a separate meal and stewed the rest of the half in the slow cooker.  I shredded the meat, cooked up some potatoes, carrots and peas, made gravy from the chicken broth and turned it all into a chicken pot pie with biscuits on top.  Jim said it was one of my best meals.

I’m going to make chicken schnitzel from the breast cutlets for a third meal from that one chicken.  So for $4.40 for the chicken we will get three meals …. not bad.

Remember, you are loved.


  1. Wow...That comes to less than $.73 per meal per person...not bad at all! Dinner looks good!

  2. Thanks, Susie, it sure tasted good.

  3. Yum!! We will be in Yuma for a few days in mid-November so hope to meet up! Ann

  4. it's why we rarely eat out. . .gourmet meals at home for a mere fraction of the price. . .wonderful!

  5. Janice - we've cut way down in our going out to eat. Now it is only once a week or maybe a lunch cause we are away from home. Less expensive and healthier for sure. Makes it easier for me to stay away from red meat as well. Plus Jim is a pretty darn good cook as he does most of the cooking now a days.


I really enjoy reading comments so please take a moment and say HI or something so I know someone is reading this thing.
