Whole organic chicken in Fridge

melly May 2, 2012 02:54 PM

I am sick of roasting chicken. Any ideas for something ELSE to do with it? We had fried chicken a few days ago. We eat a lot of chicken. Help please!!

I can't have pasta or grains right now either. :(

      They all sound great but decided on chicken and veggie soup. Perfect for a day like today. Why didn't I think of that? I was trying to complicate it. Am tired and this is great.

        It's definitely soup weather. I made last minute vegetable soup at 4pm!

      Fire up the grill! I like to butterfly the chickens and do like this: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo... ... but I skip the whole brick thing and they still come out great.

        Are you willing to cut it into parts and do a braise?

        Brown the chicken and braise it with anything -- onions, garlic, carrots, mushrooms, wine, chicken stock, browned Italian sausage, red bell peppers, potatoes, tomatoes...

          I love this Jacques Pepin recipe: crusty chicken (he uses thighs, but can be done with whole cut-up chicken) with mushrooms and white wine.

            A nice Coq au Vin - white or red? Served not only with its pearl onions & mushrooms, but also with some lovely quartered new potatoes & baby carrots?

            Or a nice Chicken Cacciatore? There's no law that it has to be served with pasta. A green salad & some crusty bread works just fine.

            Broken down, baked/roasted, & served with any number of delicious sauces & a green veggie?

            Really, with chicken, the possibilities are infinite. Just do a websearch. Absolutely NO reason to stick with just "roast" & "fried".
