I buy roasted chicken for $4-$6 bucks and take all the meat off the bones while it's still warm. I divide the meat into 2 bags that provide chicken for 2 meals. Then I throw the bones, skin and scraps into a pot, cover it all with water and let it boil for an hour. It makes yummy chicken stock to use in soups and stews and I just freeze it in a freezer bag. It ends up being so worth it. Plus I don't have to cook chicken for casseroles, soups or enchiladas. It's so nice to just pull it out of the fridge and start assembling without the hassle of cooking and shredding first.
