I defrosted a whole chicken. The kids complain lately that we don't have any "real good food" AKA kid friendly food...
So, I watched a video on you tube to see how to cut up the whole chicken and take off all the bones and skin. I was left with a pile of beautiful chicken meat. I put the bones, skin, and frame in the crock pot with some water and spices.
I put the thighs, wing meat, and the "drumstick" meat into some teryaki marinade for tomorrow's meal.
I sliced the two breast very thin and in strips. I soaked it in some ranch dressing and Parmesan cheese. I put it in the fridge all day. I took it out this evening and sit it on the stove. I had some old garlic Parmesan bread crust from my attempts at homemade bread last week. They were in the freezer. I put them in the blender and grated it into crumbs. I covered the chicken with the bread crumbs and baked it at 350 .
I steamed some green beans, and sliced a pitiful half cucumber to have on the side.
I have a few very small potatoes in the fridge. I fried them with half an onion (a very sad onion) and some butter in a pan.
OMG Dinner was AMAZING!!!
What meat that is left on the frame will be picked off and placed in a bowl for BBQ sandwiches. The stock will be put into bowls and placed in the freezer.
