    These are great ideas and very versatile. I’m currently following THM and have recently purchased an InstantPot so the suggestions were very helpful esp. since the meals are identified as S or FP. I’m also glad to see the negative comments removed. I saw this post yesterday and so many people had made snarky and unhelpful remarks. I felt discouraged and sad after reading them. You could tell that people had jumped to conclusions and made comments without even reading the article. Thank you for sharing this information…

    When I have a Rotisserie Chicken, any chicken, or any turkey; I shred the meat & divide it into 5 or 6 containers to freeze. I’ve found I can usually get at least 24 portions out of one whole chicken. I use it for sandwiches, soups, &/or casseroles. The shredded meat goes a lot further than using it in chunks, making the meals more frugal, lower in calories, & lower in fat/cholesterol. A win, win, win for me!

    I also freeze the bones until I have enough to fill a crock pot full of poultry bones. Then I make homemade chicken broth & freeze it for soups & casseroles. I put the bones in the crock pot, fill the crock pot with water, cook it on high for 12 hours, ladle the broth into a very large tupperware type container I have & put that in the fridge. I repeat the process 2-3 more times with the same bones, mixing all the broth together (the 1st batch of broth is strongest; the last batch is weakest). Once the broth is cooled, I skim the fat that has floated to the top. The end result is stronger than store bought canned chicken broth. I freeze in 4 cup Chinese take out soup containers or 3 cup (24 oz) cottage cheese containers. I usually freeze a minimum of 24-32 cups homemade broth this way.
