Using a whole chicken

The most frugal thing that I do is to use the entire chicken.

Legs-Fried Chicken
Thighs-you name it
Wings-Buffalo & BBQ
Breats-Any & everything
Back & Bones-Chicken stock
Gibblets & Liver-Stuffing and Gravy

I buy 5 or 6 whole chickens a week. I cut and bag and pop them in the freezer. Now I never have to wait for chicken to go on sale. Whole Chickens are always .69 cents a pound at Aldi.

  1. Cook the whole thing in the crockpot. Eat dinner; leftovers can be mixed with BBQ sauce for sandwiches, used for soup, etc; or just re-served with new sauce next night.

    I do this constantly. Everyone is happy and there is a lot of variety this way as well.
