we LOVE doing the rotisserie chicken thing. i buy one, pull the meat off, and then use it for meat in salads for lunches all week long...a healthy option...but quick and easy! :) (and I always have enough left for a casserole, etc....as we get a pretty big chicken at costco).

Great tips! Thanks for sharing!
:)

Stepha said...

this is great, thank you. I always knew those cooked chickens were a deal and made my life easier but your tips to freeze extras for is priceless to me.

I have been doing this for years - it is a great tip for those who are trying to reduce their "take out" consumption due to cost or calories. In regards to the broth I take it further by keeping a plastic bag or container in my freezer with not only the bones (you don't need the skin) but also onion skins, the tops of celery and carrot ends. The items give flavor to the broth & then you discard them. To make things even easier - throw those items in your crockpot & go to bed! In the morning, viola, broth!

Tanya said...

Great tips...thanks! Our HEB and Kroger grocery stores often have a "meal deal" where you buy the chicken and get sides, rolls, etc. for free.

Mrs. J said...

nice idea! i've been thinking abt getting rotisserie chicken. BTW, I like your haircut, so cool!

Laura said...

BRAVO!!!! I love it! I would have never thought of freezing. You are one Centsible Sawyer! Thanks for all you do =)

Thanks for the info. I had never realized that buying the whole deli chickens could be so wonderfully cost effective when your tips are put to use. Thanks for the info. I think I'll be putting your advice to use.

I like the chicken stock idea! I always just toss out the carcass! :)

Great tips! I love the rotisserie chickens. Love hearing your voice!

I do this but normally I buy a whole chicken from the meat department. Put it in the slow cooker all day then I make 3 meals:
Chicken Noodles
Chicken and Dumplings
Chicken Fettuchini Alfrado

And many times there is enough left over from each meal to have for lunch the next day, so actually you can stretch one chicken to about 6 meals! I make them up all on the same day and freeze them to eat later in the week.

ct said...

Excellent job and great tips!

Angie said...

Awesome job!!

Even better, I learned something new. I had never thought of that!

Yay Denise!!!!!!

Candace @ A Garden of Blessings said...

Great video Denise!
Hope you are feeling well, you look great!
I throw my bones in the ole' crock pot for 24 hours with a dash of vinegar (leaches out more minerals). I use it for rice, cous-cous, or soup.

Briana @ Bargain Briana said...

Great tip! They are so much cheaper and healthier than KFC or something!

(Love your accent - you are too cute!)

Thanks for the great tip!!

Alyssa @ KeepingTheKingdomFirst said...

I really enjoyed the video, Denise! I can't believe we will finally be face to face in just weeks!

By the way, where is your belly? I am already bigger than you at 9 weeks! You look great!

Heather said...

cute movie! I would have been so nervous to make one of these. I never knew some stores might put them on sale BOGO - I will have to look!! I HATE cooking whole chickens - ever since I was pregnant I haven't been able to handle the smell. So this is a great idea!

Awww, you just haven't the cutest little accent! I have never seen a video here before! I sometimes buy whole chickens and cook them in my crockpot, if you cook on high with the seasoned chicken on top of 3-4 pieces of balled up foil, you get the same result. And if you get the chicken on a good sale, it sometimes is cheaper than buying the pre-cooked ones. The first night I serve it as is, the next night I do chicken salad, chicken pot pie, or chicken/cornbread dressing. You do get a nice broth cooking it in the crockpot as well! Comes in handy for the cornbread dressing!

Hopefulone said...

Sounds yummy. We've never done this yet. With a family of 9 I might have to buy 2-3 for one meal! LOL. Definitely would make for some quick BBQ chicken like you said.

Love your site as always & your accent:)

Tami said...

Great video. Unfortunately, my family of 6 eats a chicken like this all the way to the bone so I never have leftovers.

Storm said...

I wish ours were that cheap here in WA - I am lucky to find them for under $6! Even Costco has raised their prices. :(

Christi said...

At our Wal-mart- if you purchase one of these after 9PM- they are 1/2 price ($2.50).

Jen said...

This is a great little video. I love getting these chickens at the store already cooked and ready to go. I did purchase at my local grocery store some whole chickens uncooked in the meat department for around $2.25 each. I don't have a Walmart near me to shop at and the chickens already cooked are around $7 at Safeway or Haggen's unless you pre-order one for Fridays for $5. I feel like I miss out on all sorts of great deals like these living in the suburbs of the Pacific Northwest, but I was delighted to find the chickens uncooked for $.52 a pound. I also like to get two meals out of a chicken. I have made things like chicken tortilla soup, enchiladas, chicken burritos, chicken noodle soup and of course different casseroles out of them. Thanks for the video and suggests. Please keep them up.
