Ya know that roaster chicken I bought yesterday for $4.96? Well, I’m cooking her. It wasn’t as gross as I thought it would be, although I did not like the slimy fat under its wings and near the legs. Eww.
I wanted to use as much of the chicken as I could, but I just couldn’t do anything with the giblets yet. I know you can use it to make gravy and stuff, but I really need to take it a step at a time.
For the spice rub, I used salt, paprika, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, thyme, and that chicken seasoning I got for free at Giant Eagle yesterday. We’ll see how it tastes!
I’m cooking the chicken on top of some chopped onions in my crock pot.
I plan to use some of the meat next week, and freeze the rest. I’ll use the bones for making a soup base. You’ll just have to wait until Monday to see my menu and recipes :)
Finally, after getting that chicken in the pot, I sanitized every surface in that kitchen–including soap bottles and water faucets. I don’t want salmonella, and I doubt my husband does, either.
