Stock Up on Whole Chickens

Buy whole chickens when they go on sale and stock up on them. The chickens can be cut up for pieces, roasted whole, eaten and then the carcasses used for stock, or you can grind your own fresh chicken meat, and make cooked chicken for casseroles, all for much less than when you buy already cut up or processed chicken!

When whole chickens are very cheap, I buy several, and freeze them. I also always make soup-put the whole chicken (remove the inside package), 1 onion, peeled but not cut up, a couple of scrubbed carrots, celery, and garlic cloves in a stock pot or crockpot or dutch oven. Let cook for several hours.. I bone the chicken, putting meat into the strained stock, then I freeze soup in either plastic bags or containers. When I thaw it, then I season it to taste, adding veggies, noodles, rice, whatever I have on hand and want to use.

I also do this with Turkeys on sale at Thanks giving time. I partial thaw, then cut them up like chickens, store the parts together in the freezer. When I make soup, I call my friends who await a small container of fresh soup.


I hate frozen soup so they bring back when they make too. I will cook the meat off the bones, sort the broth separately, then freeze ready to make fresh.
