Leftover Chicken Challenge

IMG_1021We are on our last unit of the semester, meal planning and learning how to save money. Our chicken challenge is on. I wanted to give each cooking group a creative opportunity to use convenience chicken leftovers by giving them 1/2 of a leftover rotisserie chicken.

However, the chicken breast was on sale this week for 1.99/lb and I could purchase this cheaper than the rotisserie chickens so I went for this option. I simply boiled the breasts prior to lab with my favorite recipe and created some free freezer broth while I was making their convenience chicken.

This worked extremely well and was frugal for them.


It was fun to see what they did with their leftovers.
