Poach a whole chicken with aromatic veggies and herbs. You'll have great stock for making soup or adding to other recipes (rice, veggies) and the cooked chicken is great to add to sandwiches and salads.

Buy a whole chicken. It's much less $$$ than parts. Simmer it on med. heat for about 90 mins in a stockpot with onions, garlic, carrots, celery and some aromatic herbs. It's easy to remove the skin and bones once cooled. Chill the stock to easily remove the layer of fat.
