With one chicken I make the following... ( this is my normal routine for chicken.) First night: Baked chicken ( seasoned with Perfect Poultry) Second night: After boiling the bones from the night before I half the stock and make chicken and dumplings. Third night: ( usually a few nights later as hubby complains if we have chicken more than twice in a row. ) We have chicken manhattans or chicken pot pie. If Im careful I can get chicken soup out of it too.

If it's a large hen, I get roasted chicken on the grill, chicken enchiladas, chicken and noodles, chicken egg rolls and then broth from the rest.

First night-roast (or crockpot) chicken for four, lots of trimmings make the chicken go farther! Then a chicken pot pie uses up left over gravy, veggies and just a bit of chicken. then either chicken salad or chicken casserole or chicken noodles. Finally, boil the bones and make chicken broth- my family loves homemade chicken noodle soup-use thick egg noodles and thicken the broth with a little mash potato or potato flakes-I can always get three meals from a chicken, sometimes four-this is for four, sometimes five people.

We got four thigh/leg pieces and will be having htree meals from that, six people. First night was a mexican style chicken rice dish, very good, and tonight was chinese chicken soup, there are still bones left for tommorrow, and actually we had the rice leftovers for lunch so that makes four meals (but just three different things).
