This week is a continuation of our series: 5 Meals For When Different Proteins Are On Sale. Over the next several weeks, I’ll give you 5 meal suggestions for when a certain protein is on sale.
Every now and then I’ll find whole chickens marked down at the grocery store. When that happens, I’ll buy a few extras and pop them in the freezer for future easy meals like these.
Real Food How To: Cook a Whole Chicken. In this post, you’ll find my favorite crockpot method for cooking the whole chicken, plus a list of even more chicken recipes.
Chicken Fried Rice. Making a homemade version of takeout is much much cheaper, and it still tastes amazing. Plus, if your chicken is cooked ahead of time, and you make extra rice earlier in the week, this meal comes together in record time.
Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Quinoa. It’s not quite a soup, not quite a casserole, but it is a bowl of cheesy goodness. If you’ve been looking for a good quinoa recipe, this is a great place to start.
Crockpot Chicken Enchilada Chili. All your favorite enchilada flavors, in a crockpot meal. Make it right away, or bag up all the ingredients for the freezer.
Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore. This recipe works with chicken breast or with already cooked chicken. It’s full of veggies, and according to my kids, tastes like chicken spaghetti.
What are your favorite recipes to make with chicken?
