Meal Planning Helper: Rotisserie Chickens (Video)

rotisserie chicken

 

One of my favorite meal planning tricks is to go to Sam’s Club (or Costco!) and purchase several rotisserie chickens for $5 each. We’ll eat some of the chicken for dinner that night. Then I will strip the meat off of the bone for all of the chickens and freeze it for later use.

 

 

I will take some of the chicken and mix it with either BBQ sauce or gravy and put it in the freezer. I’ll chop up the chicken breast meat and freeze it in one-cup portions. This makes it easy to thaw out and toss into soups, casseroles, stews, etc. I can hardly buy a whole uncooked chicken for $5 at the grocery store, so Sam’s rotisserie chickens save me money as well as time!
