I'm sure most of you will know what rubber chicken is but if you don't it means to s-t-r-e-t-c-h a chicken to make as many meals as possible and use every bit of the chicken.
Tuesday four people had roast chicken with salad. This is how I used the chicken over the week.
I then stripped every last bit of meat off the carcass and I stored this in an old margarine tub which was then put in the freezer for later in the week.

The carcass along with another I had in the freezer was put in my slowcooker with an onion, carrot, bay leaf, black peppercorns and some water and left to cook for six hours.
This was then strained and stored in containers to freeze. I got three lots of stock for later use. All I had left was some skin and bones. The carrot from the stock went to the dog.
What do you make with your chicken leftovers? I could do with some new ideas to try.
