Tonight we had chicken and mango stir-fry, which came together really well. The perfectionist in me says I could have done better on the stir-fry, but it was good. And I'm right; I could have done better. LOL 

So. The chicken ... went on and on and on....

Previous Post

The size 20 chicken ended up as...

- Roast for 2 adults
- four adult sandwiches
- four litres of soup
- chicken casserole
- chicken and mango stirfry.
- six x 100 mL stock cubes

I kind of feel like I didn't do a lot of cooking this week, too. Odd.
:-)
So, the chicken cost $16, I used half a tin of mangoes and stuff like that. If we include the soup as a family sized meal each litre, we ended up with 8ish meals... I will admit, I was worried about some of the portioning, but it all seemed to work. And we didn't feel hard done y or anything like that, we were definitely full up. We made crispy fritters using a pancakey type batter for the veggies with the casserole, and V ate some of it! Without us making him LOL

I was amazed at the chicken flesh I got off the stock. I was even more amazed when I realised I didn't use the leg bones or wing bones.

My next chicken is a 23 rather than a 20, so I wonder how that will make things. And it cost me $12 anyway. :-) Next week I make up my own rubber chicken deal with an asian influence. Yum!

I wrote this up in a frenzy of enthusiasm. Then I made a mistake, went and got a wipe, and rubbed out the mistake. Discovered I have made a clean spot. Seriously. A real, actual clean spot. Have now wiped the freezer clear and re-drawn it up, this time in sections. Meat, Vegetables, and Pre-prepared

So, the size 20 chicken has done... roasted chicken, a LOT of soup, six 100mL stock cubes, four adult chicken sandwiches, and tonight we had casserole made with a half a tin of condensed chicken soup, a little bit of sweet potato, and breadcrumb topping. Served with fritters made of various roasted vegies from the last 2 days. And there's just enough left over for a stirfry dinner for two if I was feeling enthused. But I might use it to make a chicken rice dish for lunch tomorrow, and sneak some vegies into it. :-)  We'll see.
