Costco has some really great deals, but nothing probably as great as its rotisserie chicken.
For just about $5, you get a tasty roasted chicken that is hormone free. So, you can just pick it up and have a quick chicken meal, or use it to make chicken salad or some other dish.
THEN, you can toss the carcass into a crock pot, simmer it for 12 hours, and get about 12 cups of great stock to use for soups. If you bought stock in the store, this would probably cost you between $5-$10. So, it makes the chicken even MORE economical.
I must admit that while I do love baking my own chicken, you really can not beat a rotisserie for most occasions. Anyone else do creative meal prep with pre-cooked chicken?
