Yesterday morning, I put away 40 lbs of chicken and completely cleaned the entire kitchen after with Clorox in 2 hours and 35 minutes. The trash was even out. However, to be fair the pressure cooker was still going and had about 30 more minutes. So what did I make?
2 pans of Italian Ranch chicken strips
8 pans of barbecue chicken chunks (I froze these in round pans because I can either bake them this way, or they will fit perfectly in my round crockpot.)
4 pans of chicken pot pie (I freeze the filling and add my bread topping when I bake them. I either add a biscuit crust, cornbread crust, or a pie crust depending on my mood.)
4 pans of chicken tetrazzini (I put cheese on all four, but snapped the photo to show the veggies, too.)
5 bags with the double the amount we need for a meal. This is for grilling. If we have company I'll have enough, but if not I'll grill extra to use during the week.
Almost 2 quarts of chicken broth.
7 pints of chicken for chicken salad or quick meals. (This was my first time raw packing meat to can, so I've learned something new this month.)
At $68.95 the chicken for these meals works out to be $2.30 per meal. Not bad at all.
