I love stretching one chicken over several meals. With only 2 of us here at home, it is pretty easy. On Sunday, we cooked a chicken in the crock pot like this. We used some of the meat for a late supper. Since it was on the late side, we just had a chicken sandwich. Then on Monday we had chicken and a side of vegetables. I put water in the crock pot to make some bone broth. I love that I can put my crock pot on low and it will go for a long time. It is good to add raw apple cider vinegar (ACV) to your broth to help pull all the goodness out of the bones. I added my super tonic to the broth, which has an ACV base. Today, I pulled the rest of the chicken out and picked the meat off the bones. I put the chicken back into the broth and added another dollop of super tonic. I love that stuff. 🙂 I also added some left over mixed vegetables that were in the fridge. I was going to add rice, but changed my mind at the last minute and put a cup of quinoa in. I let it cook in the broth. It still had big pieces of onion and garlic from when we cooked the chicken the first time. This soup was so good, that I had 2 bowls. 🙂 Plus I have left overs for lunches this week.
What are some ways that you use to stretch a chicken. I would love to hear about them in the comments below.
