Frequently buying a bag of chicken breasts is not only spendy, but only gives you a fraction of the nutritional bang-for-your-buck you can get when you just buy the whole dang chicken.
However, a great big chicken sitting in your refrigerator can be a bit intimidating if you don't know what you're doing. So in today's video, Jessa Greenfield shows you how to cut up a chicken, and why buying a whole chicken is actually a better deal (under this video, I tell you what we actually do with the chicken).
After we shot this video, Jessa and I sat down to talk about what we actually use the whole chicken pieces for after we finish cutting up the whole chicken.
And as much as we'd like to say we have oodles of chicken recipes, between the two of us we could only think of 8 ways that we actually use this chicken.
Yep, we eat that simple.
But in case you were curious, here are those 8 ways we use that whole chicken:
#1. Chicken Skewers with Almond Sauce
#2. Chicken Bone Broth for Soup
#3. Roasted Chicken With Sea Salt, Garlic & Pepper
#4. Chicken Pad Thai (probably the highest carb meal we ever have, reserved for the end of a tough workout day, long day on the ski slopes, etc.)
#5. Chicken Avocado Salad
#6. Chicken Fajitas
#7. Cashew Breaded Chicken
#8: Asian-Style Chicken Skewers with Bok Choy or Mustard Greens
This post sure would be prettier if it were a Top 10 instead of a Top 8…so now it's YOUR turn. How do YOU use chicken? Are you curious if your chicken recipes are healthy?
