    I loved the idea of 1 Chicken, 5 meals so here is the menu plan I came up with

    1 Deli Chicken (it was 4 lbs), roasted potatoes, broccoli
    Chicken Corn Chowder
    Chicken and CousCous salad
    Adobe chicken sandwiches (I used the chipotle mayo recipe here and just mix chicken chunks and chopped pickled jalapeno peppers)

    It's only 4 meals because I chopped it all up and separated the meat and that's what I had enough for. Well, I guess I can make broth/soup from the bones, but I'd rather let the racoons have the carcass.

    I usually buy the rotisserie chicken from the deli for around $6. I use the meat for meals and when we've used up as much as we could I add the carcass to a pot of water and make my own broth from it. I freeze celery when I have some leftover (usually the core), when adding the frozen celery to broth it breaks down quicker and you get more flavor for less. I use ice cube trays to freeze it and then put the cubes in gallon size freezer ziploc bags. I did this with scraps from pork I had and used the broth for ham and beans. My husband said it was the best ham and beans I have ever made!

    Excellent ideas! broth made with the carcass then turned into a soup with or without meat is also an idea.
