How to Get 4 Meals from 1 Chicken!

Are you Struggling to save money, but want to prepare more Home-made meals for the Family? Well Your not alone! 

As a busy mother of active kids, it can so easily become a habit to just run out in town for a quick pizza for dinner, or a pack of hot dogs that you quickly cook and it's ready. But I want to feed my kids with Healthy, Chemical free food so they don't get that hiper, and so they can get strong and think better in school.

I know exactly how you feel!

You know they need healthy food while they're young, so their bones and body gets strong and healthy!

And I don't want to have them get the Flu this season! So I feel I am cheating on them, but as a young mother don't know much about cooking!

You are not alone, And I have a remedy for you! Below I have recipes that will help you get 4 meals out of 1 whole chicken. 

What if 1 whole chicken is too much for just me and my hubby? Well, you can find more recipes online and 1 chicken can get into a lot meals. Or you can get the Leg & Thighs and enjoy them in a few meals!



Below I have 4 steps with Recipes that will help you get the most out of each chicken, but there are of course many other recipes that may look more appealing to you!

Day #1: Put Whole Chicken in pan. Cook the whole chicken slowly for about 4-6 hours. Add a few seasonings if you want, (we usually do some Celtic Sea Salt, and preffered seasons.) 

(Raw Pastured Chicken is the most delicious if cooked slowly on low heat.) After cooking it, make sure it is nice and soft, then enjoy!

Once finish eating, get all left-overs off bones, and put into Fridge for use with next recipes. (Be sure to save bones for broth)

Our Whole Chicken comes with Organs in it, so that is a highlight for the kids to dig in there and get the delicious, Healthy liver. 


Day #2: Chicken Salad

2 Cups Chopped, Cooked Chicken

1/2 cup chopped Celery

3 hard-boiled Eggs, chopped

1/4 tsp. Pepper

1/2 tsp. Season-all

2 Tbsp. Maple Syrup

1 Tbsp. Mustard

3/4-1 cup Mayonnaise

Mix all ingredients together and enjoy! No need to cook it. Keep Refrigerated.

Is good on Sandwiches with Lettuce, or with your cooked veggies.


Day #3: Make Bone Broth!

Make bone broth with all bones. Add vegetables or onions if you want. (We usually don't but some people do). 

Enjoy bones broth with vegetable soup, or save for soup recipe below!


Day #4: Chicken Corn Soup!

2 cups (Cut-up) cooked Chicken

4 cups corn

1/2 tsp. Salt

1/8 tsp. Pepper

1/2 tsp. Parsley

1 Cup Noodles (Optional)

Cook noodles in 2 cups water then add Chicken, Corn, Salt, Pepper, and Parsley. Bring to a boil, then add bone broth.

Adding some chopped celery and onions is also good!

Eat like that, or you can put it in containers and put in freezer, then enjoy your soup this winter.


There you go! Enjoy the recipes, and feel free to share your favorite recipe in the comments below!


If you want more recipes and tips for making whole chicken, you can Google: "How to get 4 meals from 1 whole chicken."


But Remember that store-bought chicken has been raised with soy, so  it grew very fast, and is not the best option if you want to eat Healthy. My best opinion is to get Fresh Grass-fed chicken straight from a farmer you trust. 



Thank you so much for supporting our Family Farm. We need your support, and we are here to help you reach your goal of eating healthy, and feeling good!

Blessings to you an your Family!

What Does a Morning look like at the Farm?

A morning on the Farm reminds me of what the phrase from the Bible in Lamentations: "Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness."
