WFMW - The Tale of Two Chickens

Check out more great ideas at Works For Me Wednesday.

I baked a chicken tonight.

Thank you. Thank you very much.

That's not really the big deal. Reeaally? Yeah, really.

Here's the Works for me Wednesday part!

I learned this little tip a couple years ago from a mentor. Mentor being defined as someone who has grown kids and has a couple tricks up her sleeves.

Instead of just baking the one chicken you planned for dinner...get your notepad ready...Bake 2 chickens. Real simple and helps you to simplify later in the week.

Eat one chicken that night with your favorite sides and strip the other chicken of it's meat for a casserole, chicken salad and soups the rest of the week. Genius really. Not my idea, of course.
Saladmaster Customers: Get your 7 quart out. Put 2 chickens instead of 1 in it. Salt and Pepper it. Maybe some Poultry seasoning or your favorite spice. Add some celery, garlic, apples or onions. Or all of that would be good, too.

Turn it to Medium. When it clicks, turn it to low for about 3-5 hours or 15 minutes per pound.

I am constantly missing the simple things. I just think we are too busy multi-tasking and taking care of absolutely what has to be taken care of now to think about what needs to be taken care of later in the week.
