“I am obsessed with saving money. This recipe is used for my second cookbook in a series of Easy & Frugal recipes by Kitchen Kouture. The concept is to cook the chicken on Sunday. Freeze the leftovers of the chicken in seperate zip lock bags. Cook as big or as many chickens as you want, depending on the amount of leftovers you want to freeze. A 4 lb chicken will make 2 meals ( 1.5 lb meat each bag), (2) 4 lb chickens 4 meals, and so on. Just take a ziplock bag out and unthaw when ready to use.”
