Then I'm also going to use the bones from the chicken and make broth. I've never do e this but got the idea to do it bc I'm always buying broth for recipes.
Do any of you buy rotisseries and make meals from them?
Yessss I use the leftover bones and chicken bits from our rotisseries to make broth and it is PHENOMENAL. Over time, I collect bits of veggies that I would usually throw away or compost (pepper tops/stems, carrot tops, broccoli stalks, asparagus stalks, etc) and I put them in freezer bags in the freezer until I have leftover chicken bones. Then when I have chicken bones, I toss them in my crockpot with as many of those leftover frozen veggie bits as I can fit, fill the crockpot to the brim with water, and cook everything on low for about 14-24 hours. Sometimes I add a dash of apple cider vinegar if I have it. So easy and so good, and I get a good amount of broth out of a bunch of foods I'd usually be throwing out.

As for the rotisserie meat, we usually eat that as is with sides that I make.. I never have enough chicken to make into more than four servings. Maybe my store has small rotisseries available? Hmm..

In case you're curious about my status: I'm Kate, I spend every miraculous day with my darling soul mate JB and we are expecting our first baby (boy!) ...

Yea they tend to be bigger at SAMs club or Costco than the grocery store.

Business travel for me tonight, so I ate out on the road. Great local spot to the city I'm in, with handmade pasta and a great antipasto platter. Glad to be able to expense it though!!

We ended up having nachos for dinner. I made my little guy a taco salad and he gobbled it up.
