  1. Enchiladas
    Use in pasta bakes or added to pasta dishes
    "pull" it and mix with bbq sauce or buffalo sauce for sandwiches
    Use in curries
    Use in wraps
    Chicken salads

      1. Feed it to the dog! After all those hours, I find it has no taste or texture.

          I make a big pot of chicken soup every week (using 9 lbs of chicken) and yes the mahority of he chicken is used to feed our three odgs, BUT if your soup chicken ha no taste, you are #1 cooking your soup way to long, ad #2 not using enough chicken in the soup.

          I start with cold water and using mediu heat bring t a boil (about 1 hour), then reduce to a simmer for a second hour.

          I then remove all the chicken and vegetables and strain the soup. The meat has plenty of taste.

          Besides the dogs, chicken salad and some cut up in the soup, my wife and kids love when I make chicken croquettes with the soup chicken

            OP and I are talking about stock not soup. My stock can easily go 8, 10 or more hours. At that point, the chicken has 'given its all.'

            If you're making stock, you're boiling it with onions... Not exactly dog safe!

              Nope. No onions or anything else as you'll see down thread.

            1. Can make a large chicken pot pie or two. Freeze for later use.

                Yes, portion in maybe 2 cup containers, freeze, and use for many a recipes. Since the flavor may have suffered, use highly spiced dishes.

                  poultry seasoning might be good to use
