It is true that the 1st time I ever cooked a split chicken breast was just last week! I have always been a total chicken snob (I blame my mother) but my frugality got the better of me when I saw them on sale for only .88/lb. at Apple Market a few weeks back.
In my quest to figure out what to do with these things I happened upon $5 Dinners.com. I loved her post about split chicken breasts. I could totally relate to her story and I loved her idea!
So today I am encouraging you to take a peek at her post HERE because I thought it was great!
I didn't end up using her recipe because I found it after the fact, but my chicken still turned out pretty good. I cooked 5 breasts total and ended up with enough chicken for 3 meals. I could have had more but pulling cooked meat off the bone was grossing me out... not gonna lie! I am sure I will get better with time:)
The recipes I will be using my chicken for are Cheesey Chicken and Rice Casserole, Chicken Tortilla Soup and Chicken and Noodles. Now you may have noticed that I don't have a link for the chicken and noodles recipe. That is because I don't have a good one. If you have you want to share please feel free to do so!
