Cook Once, Make Multiple Meals

Cook.  Clean.  Cook.  Clean.  At times it feels like my current life is the movie “Groundhog Day” or a hamster wheel or the back of shampoo bottle: lather, rinse, repeat.  I found it challenging in my “previous” life to come up with creative meals on a given week.  Now I have to be creative AND plan a week in advance to minimize the number of times I am at the grocery store or if you are ordering for delivery, most grocery stores are a scheduling a week out.

Chicken may not be a creative ingredient but you can cook a bunch of it and use it for so many recipes so cook once, make multiple meals and jump off the hamster wheel just for a little bit.  Bake, roast, boil or buy a rotisserie chicken.

You can roast/bake a full chicken or just a chicken breast: roast chicken.  Or boil chicken in water and make a chicken broth (and/or chicken soup).  With the chicken cooked from either method above, you have started the base for any of the recipes below.  

Now with all of your free time, do a load of laundry.
