|Dinner's main dish all cooked up for you for just $5! What a deal!|
Unfortunately, there are a finite number Thursday nights my family will willing eat the same ol' rotisserie chicken. Many weeks I skipped the chicken, but that seemed like a bargain missed and time-savings lost, so I made a quick, off-the-top-of-my-head list of things I could make with those chickens --
- soft tacos
- chicken noodle soup.
It was a good start, but not terribly creative, so I flipped through a few of my favorite cookbooks and found --
- Kashah Chicken Vegetable Soup with Couscous
- Tortilla Soup
- Raj Chicken Soup
- White Chicken Chili --
The next week I grabbed two more chickens, cut 'em up Thursday, then Friday morning I filled up the slow cooker with a mega-batch of White Chicken Chili.
That evening the boys' school had it's annual skate night at an outdoor rink -- it was a balmy 23 degrees that night, and the thermoses full of steaming hot Chicken Chili were a huge hit with my guys. (Recipe to follow.)
Last Thursday the Handsome Husband was working late, so I closed the kitchen and let the boys choose our dinner date destination, but I didn't skip gettin' a couple of Clucks!
Cut up, labeled & stowed in the basement freezer -- the way I figure, you can never have too much cooked cluck at the ready to toss in the slow cooker or pot, slice up to put on a nice mixed green salad, or dice up for some good ol' fashioned chicken salad.
This week's cluck is going into tonight's Kasbah Chicken Vegetable Soup with Couscous.
But I need your help -- my cluck list is still pretty short -- please share any cluck-worthy recipes you have in your culinary arsenal!
