Roast one chicken -- eat well for days! Here's the plan:
Dinner #1: Spatchcocked Roast Chicken by merrill
Roast the biggest free-range chicken you can get your hands on -- you'll want lots of leftovers. (If feeding a crowd, you can roast 2 side-by-side.) May we suggest serving with mashed potatoes and milky peas?
Dinner #2: Chicken Salad by amanda
Chop up that leftover chicken for this feisty, no-mayo chicken salad (in sandwich form or on top of a big pile of salad greens). And don't toss those chicken bones -- make stock!
Dinner #3: Smoky Minestrone with Tortellini and Parsley or Basil Pesto by WinnieAb
That chicken stock you made yesterday? It makes for a mean minestrone.
Extra Credit: You know what would taste great with all these meals? Homemade Buttermilk Oatmeal Bread.
