Frugal Friday: Shredded Chicken

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted a frugal Friday tip. A recent sale on chicken sparked my memory and I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share with you all.

Bone-in, skin-on chicken periodically goes on sale for an unbelievable price. At my local grocery store, 88 cents per pound simply can’t be passed up.

Thing is, I don’t cook bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts all that often. So, I got creative with how to make the most of this sale…AND it’s super simple.

Stock up on several packages of the chicken breasts at the store. Then, cut the skins off and toss them in the crock pot. Once the chicken is cooked through, shred (if you have a stand mixer, a super quick and simple way to shred is to throw the cooked chicken in and let the mixer roll), portion into containers, and toss in the freezer!

It’s an excellent way to take advantage of an awesome deal PLUS you will have cooked, shredded chicken in the freezer for the many meals calling for this ingredient….chicken salad, tacos, enchiladas, pasta, salad topper, sandwiches…the list goes on and on!

Do yourself a favor – take advantage of this tip. You will be thrilled that you did, especially when you’re in a pinch for a quick dinner!
