I love these easy roasted chickens. For $5-8 dollars I can make several different meals. (1) Eating the leg&thigh portion right away w/some sides. (2) Making bowls of chicken noodle soup (usually freezing half for later in the month) with the carcass and some of the breast meat. (3) The remaining
chicken meat I can toss w/some BBQ sauce and have "pulled BBQ chicken" buns. Or chicken soft tacos w/some taco seasoning. Or chicken to top a salad. You get the point... I used to roast my own chicken but for another dollar or two I can save an hour of cooking....
My favorite butcher shop will run specials on ground beef and bone/skin-less chicken breast in 10# bulk.
I buy 20# of ground beef and fry it all up in two hours. In batches, it has time to drain more fat off. The 10# of chicken breasts will fit in my crock pot. I spice it up and slow cook it. I package the meat up in 2 cup containers and freeze it. It saves meal prep time and dirty dishes.
