I had a 5lb Chicken last week, I cut it up and used 7 pcs (cutting the half breast into 3 pcs) for fried chicken. I used the back and wings for chicken stock for Chicken noodle soup, and made soup and sandwiches. The other half breast was used to make Chicken Divan served with white rice and garlic toast. Not bad for ane chicken making 10 meals.................

We're thinking of going up in late May or early June. But gasoline hit $3.99 here today, so ... .
Nutmegger? I use it every once in a while. Heck, even the state doesn't use it any longer. They've been putting Constitution State on their license plates for years. I guess they don't want people to know why Connecticut is called the Nutmeg State.
Hint for observers: Don't take any wooden nutmegs.

Now that I am retired, I will go back to buying whole chickens,cutting them up.  I use the breasts, thighs,legs for fried, barbecued, cacciatore, etc chicken.  I throw the rest(back, wings) in the freezer, I make chicken & noodles, chicken & dumplings, chicken stuffing casserole, etc.  The other thing I will do when roasting chickens are on sale is to have the butcher take out the backbone(throw it in the freezer), roast the chocken flat.  Letfovers are for chicken salad, mexican(encliladas, taco salad).

Last time that act was performed it was called "Loaves & Fishes' and that hasn't been done in over 2000 years!
