Let’s do some cooking with Chicken!

PURCHASING FRESH BONE-IN SKIN ON CHICKEN BREASTS ARE MORE ECONOMICAL THAN SKINLESS/BONELESS. You may ask why? Per pound costs is considerably less. If for example you purchase two whole chicken breasts (Skin on/bone in) you can cut that in half. For one person, that will make 4 meals (depending on your appetite and what you make to eat!). If you baked the one half breast you can shred the chicken for a chicken taco. The other 3 halves are ready for another use in different chicken dishes. You can make a small pot of chicken soup with one half breast, just add vegetable stock, water, seasonings, carrots, potatoes or noodles, rice and away you go. You will still have one whole breast left to cut into half. Thus, making two more meals. Chicken salad as a lunch option is wonderful on multi-grain bread with lettuce and tomato. A baked well seasoned half chicken breast with brown, wild or white rice served on the side. 

When I was a newlywed I use to purchase whole chickens. The cost here in Florida for a Perdue or Tyson Brand Whole Fryer is like (stupid) high. In your area check out the cost for a whole chicken, it may even be more economical than skin on-bone in chicken breasts. Cutting up a chicken is really easy with a good sharp knife and cutting board. I have done it many times! (Remember always to thoroughly wash your hands after touching raw poultry).

Try not to skip breakfast it is the most important meal of the day. Eat a light lunch so you do not feel sluggish and tired!

Eat a well-balanced supper. Get plenty of rest. Drink water keep hydrated. Read a book. Visit a friend. Take a long walk in the park. Be safe and stay happy!!!

In closing, I wish you Good Health.
