Even though the prices on poultry have gone up, along with everything else, it’s still a bargain. When my kids were growing up, a Sunday’s roast chicken was always good for a second meal — pot pie, chicken noodle soup, chicken and mushroom crepes or just chicken salad. Now that there’s just two of us, we empty-nesters can get three or even four meals out of a single bird. First, consider your options at the grocery store. Do NOT buy selected chicken parts if you’re into saving money. Split chicken breasts can be pricey. For the price of two breasts, you can buy a whole chicken. And for less than the price of a whole roasting chicken, you can buy one of those family packs that includes all the pieces, already cut up for you. (A recent shopping excursion had a whole chicken at $8-plus and the cut-up chicken was about $6.) For a battle plan on how to make a chicken stretch into multiple meals, CLICK HERE.
