Ok girl. I know. You’re like “I’m not touching a whole chicken and who in the world makes broth from scratch?!” But I’m going to tell you right now I’ve watched all y’all do MUCH harder things in life.

Chickening Out

October 24, 2018 | meals

Ever have those weeks or months you've got to tighten up the grocery budget? I think it really proves how innovative and savvy we can be. When that's the case over here, we do the chicken week. THIS is #budgetlyfe on the real real. I learned this from my friend Kimber (get you a friend like her!) but the steps are basically:
1. Buy a whole chicken (love the organic one at Costco, its def price-doable!)
2. Cook it
3. Make broth from the bones 
4. Find meals that use the chicken and the broth. Winnnn for your budget. You can eat that whole chicken all week long. I link examples of my faves below.

Ok girl. I know. You’re like “I’m not touching a whole chicken and who in the world makes broth from scratch?!” But I’m going to tell you right now I’ve watched all y’all do MUCH harder things in life. So if you wanna do it, I believe in you. You can also grab a good old case of chicken broth from Costco and a rotisserie chicken and go to work, but if you spent your grocery budget on coffee or donuts or the new boots you needed, this might be a little less pennies. 

Ok, here's the two links you need to figure it all out. Renee at Raising Generation Nourished is a fave of mine! 
HIGHLY recommend using an instant pot. You can do it in a crockpot but it'll take so much longer.

Instant Pot Whole Chicken

Instant Pot Bone Broth

You can eat a dozen donuts like a boss and still pioneer woman it up with a whole chicken in the same week. I’ve lived to tell about it. 

Chicken Cacciatore
(when I make this I just use a bunch of the cooked shredded chicken from what I made and combine with the other ingreidents.)

You can find this cookbook here

 

Other meals that use easy shredded chicken are loaded baked potatoes, stir fry (just add in some rice and fave veggies), bbq chicken sandwiches (stir in some bbq and slap on some buns!), or chicken salad!

Go conquer that meal plan, sister. You ain't no chicken.
