That has got to be the funniest thread title I have seen in a long time!

Did you find what you were looking for? I only get three meals out of a chicken myself (main meal, casserole-y sort of thing and soup). If there are more to be had from one chicken I would love to know about it!

yes there is--i learned it on flylady (although i'm a flylady dropout )

but seriously..yes you can make a chicken last 3 days (or more if you tried)

buy one whole chicken (i prefer organic but find a good 3-5 lb chicken)

day 1: roast that sucker in the oven with some carrots, potatoes and an onion (i also will sometimes put a lemon in the cavity and use some fresh rosemary..mmm) i usually do this on a sunday

day 2: take all the meat off the bones (save the carcass!) and make burritos w/black beans, salsa, cheese.. (or sometimes i will make a pot pie or a chicken salad..)

day 3: throw what's left in a crockpot or on the stove. add water, an onion, some celery and make soup. strain out all the bones and throw in whatever veggies you have laying around (usually i use the ones that are about to go bad) and some beans or potatoes and some good seasonings/herbs...(i like to use a chipolte pepper and white beans and serve it with tortillas)

i use the leftover soup for lunches or freeze it for another meal so often we get at least 4 meals from one chicken..

being a new single mama this has been a lifesaver and we're eating very good

there ya go!
