Chickens were on sale this week, whole ones, for a change. So I stocked up.
This first one is providing 3 meals for the family, which is great. Baked, then chicken pot pie, then chicken and dumplings.
The next 4, well, that's different. The Spawn is going to get deep hands-on experience at assembly line cutting, battering, and frying them. At Popeyes, he worked the serving, not cooking, end of the business. Here he's watched but never gotten club hand from repeated dippings in egg wash and flour yet. He's gonna get his rather gooey baptism!
Then all but that night's dinner chicken will get put in trays to freeze in individual pieces, then all will be bagged and labeled and tucked into the freezer to supply meals for the next 8 weeks.
I love it when a plan comes together ... and I HATE doing 4 chickens alone. So much easier with help!
