When I need a little “help” with dinner I will pick up a rotisserie chicken from Sam’s Club. It is $4.98 and we use it for several meals. I usually take a breast and the legs off for dinner. I take the rest of the meat off and use for nachos, quesadillas or salad for dinner the next night. I also use it to make meals for the twins. My favorite part of buying the chicken is using the “carcass” to make chicken broth. I just throw the bones and skin into the pot, add water and a few other ingredients and let it simmer. Use whatever you have on hand to flavor the broth. I use the broth for soup, white chicken chili, or to boil egg noodles in. Hope this helps you save a few dollars in your grocery budget!

Separate your chicken from the bones/skin.
Cover the chicken bones/skin with water in a large pot. Add carrots, celery, onion, garlic and spices to season. Bring to a boil and then allow it to simmer for about 30 minutes.
Allow to cool and transfer to the fridge or freezer until you are ready to use it!
