    Great post! Thank you!

    What a great article, recipe(s) and idea! I’ve had to really implement a STRICT budget for cooking (kid in college, car repairs, higher insurance costs, etc, etc, etc,) and this is just the thing for my DH and myself now that we’re empty-nesters. I plan to do this with three chicken breasts, and appropriate reductions in the recipes for two or three servings!

  • Heather says:

    I just bought these at Sams because they were marked down. Now I have a way to stretch them further. Thanks for the great post.

  • Julie says:

    How is it I have never thought to boil the bones and get the rest of the chicken off before? I usually cut off the breast and throw the rest away. Which is why I prefer to buy boneless, skinless when it goes on sale. Now I’ll start buying split more often. Didn’t realize how much meat I was throwing away.

    I like to put my chicken/turkey bones in the slow cooker with water, herbs (thyme, celery seed) & veg (onions, carrots, celery, garlic). IT cooks all day, has a fantastic flavor & is much easier for me than watching a pot. Plus, whatever meat is left just falls off the bone.

    Thanks so much! I love these frugal chicken cooking ideas! You are the best!

  • Linda says:

    Great post! I buy boneless, skinless chicken breasts when they go on sale for $1.89, but this is an even better idea!! I’ll have to start buying more bone-in chicken instead!!!

  • Mary says:

    Only bnls sknls for me!…..only cause @ our local mom & POP grocer regular price is 1.89# this week it’s on sale for 1.39! We are blessed!

  • Wonderful post! It is always fun coming up with more ways to make the budget stretch while feeding a family and chicken is one we can often get on sale. Thanks for sharing!!! =)

  • Jamie says:

    I am lazy. I roast a whole chicken. Shred and dice the chicken. Then place in freezer bags for use in recipes. I then take the bones and boil them to make stock.
