Usually three pounds each. That serves two adults one dinner plus leftovers. Our toddler basically refuses all meat.

Tonight husband is working so I'm having leftover turkey noodle soup, and Little Man is eating parmesan noodles, peach applesauce and either a cheese or yogurt if he's still hungry.

Kitchensqueen, where do you find nice small chickens like that? Our grocery ones are disturbingly huge, making it tough to predict cooking times.

Me and kiddo again this week. Her birthday dinner tonight is homemade chicken noodle soup, so I'll have a lot of extra chicken after making broth. I'll probably do a simplified chicken Parmesan with pasta one night, with barbecue sauce and cole slaw another night.

The organic ones I see around are much smaller, but of course more $$$

I'm fortunate to have a local butcher shop in the next town over that sources locally raised birds, and they charge reasonable prices - I think I'm paying around $1.30 per pound. So I can get a nice chicken for under $5.

Tonight I made meatloaf with spicy ketchup glaze, mashed potatoes and green beans.
