Yep, just another way a chicken can stretch your frugal dollar. The bird yielded fat, skin, breast meat and bits from other parts.
The potatoes are crisping up with the skin and fat.
Tonight's dinner was rice with potatoes, beans, chicken, frozen green peppers and onions, plus frozen spinach. I spiced it with curry, turmeric, Adobo salt, paprika and saffron plus liquid ranchero sauce -- the dregs which I rinsed out of the bottle using chicken broth (from a box purchased at a dollar store because I had none of my own thawed).
On the side, shredded cheese (from a block), light sour cream and chopped bagged salad with cabbage, carrots and tomatoes. Just another night of stretching our food dollars to make a yummy meal!
