Left Over Chicken Recipes - Rubber Chicken Cooking Part Two

For all you frugal moms out there, here is a way for you to save time and money by stretching one whole chicken into several simple chicken recipes for dinner. On this page I will share some leftover chicken recipes plus a recipe for homemade chicken broth.

Simple Chicken Recipes Meal #1: Roasted Chicken

For the first of these simple chicken recipes you will be roasting a chicken. This recipe calls for the following ingredients:
  • One large chicken (approximately four to six pounds)
  • Two tablespoons of softened butter
  • Two tablespoons of olive oil
  • Two to three cloves of garlic, minced
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • Rosemary
  • 1/3 teaspoon of parsley
  • 1/3 teaspoon of oregano
  • 1/3 teaspoon of basil
Take some time now to preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

First wash the chicken and pat it dry (inside and out). The giblets can be removed from the chicken’s cavity and put to the side to use later.

Now, mix the butter, garlic, parsley, oregano, and basil. Rub this seasoning mix over the entire skin. If you have the time, carefully peel back the skin and season in between the skin and the meat for extra, locked in flavor.

Place chicken in a roasting pan, breast side down. Cover the chicken with half of the olive oil and season to taste with the salt, pepper, and oregano. Place the roasting pan in the oven and bake, uncovered, for one hour.

After 1 hour, flip the chicken over and pour the remaining olive oil on it. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and oregano before returning to oven for another hour. You can tell that the chicken is done when the legs pull away from the rest of the chicken and the juice runs clear in between the leg and the body.

Cool for ten minutes before slicing and serving.

After you have served your family this delicious dinner, put the remainder of the chicken in the refrigerator overnight. The next day debone the chicken and set the bones aside. Remove all of the meat and store it. Set aside two baggies with 2 cups each of chicken meat for your two leftover chicken recipes for dinner later that week. If you have any chicken left over after that, they can be used for chicken sandwiches or chicken salad.

Simple Chicken Recipes #2: Curry Chicken

The second of my suggested chicken recipes for dinner is chicken curry. This Indian dish is flavorful and healthy! To make this dish you will need:
  • Two cups of leftover chicken
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons of freeze-dried onions (Frugal tip: whenever you buy onions, chop them up and freeze them for later use – you will never regret it)
  • Two tablespoons of butter
  • Two tablespoons of curry powder
  • Minced garlic or garlic powder
  • 24 ounces of yogurt or sour cream (I prefer using greek yogurt)
  • 2 cups of dry rice (will yield 4 cooks of cooked rice)
  1. Cook the rice while you are making the curry.
  2. Soak onions in a skillet with a small amount of water for a few minutes. Add vegetable oil and the chicken and sautee until the onions soften and then remove chicken and onions and set aside.
  3. Melt the butter in the skillet and then add the curry powder and garlic to taste. Stir in the yogurt or sour cream.
  4. Reintroduce the chicken and onions to the skillet and cook for a few minutes.
  5. Serve on top of the cooked rice. Enjoy!

Simple Chicken Recipes #3: Chicken and Dumplings

For the third of these leftover chicken recipes, you will need:
  • 2 cups of shredded chicken meat
  • 32 ounces of chicken broth (keep reading this page to find out how to make your own)
  • 1 can of cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can of biscuits (10 count)
  • Flour
  • Salt and pepper to taste
This recipe is quite simple. First bring the broth to a boil in a large pot. Stir in the cream of chicken soup and salt and pepper to taste.

Separate the biscuits into 3 layers each, dipping each layer into layer into flour. Then tear each layer into 3 more layers before dropping them into the broth/soup mixture. Be careful NOT to stir the biscuits a lot or you will end up with dumpling soup. Instead, gently push them down whenever they float to the top.

Once all of the “dumplings” are added, cook for an additional 10 minutes. Add the shredded chicken and set the heat to low until you are ready to serve.

Simple Chicken Recipes #4: Chicken Broth

Now for the last of these leftover chicken recipes for dinner. Remember those bones that I told you to set aside? You can actually use those to make your very own chicken broth! For the recipe, check out my page on homemade chicken broth.

Now that you see how easy it is to stretch a whole chicken into several meals, what chicken recipes are you going to try out?
