This is the last Rotisserie meal in the series. If you look at the ingredients needed, you will be making broth or stock to make a delicious chicken soup for a "soup and sandwich lunch". I provide my link to other options at the end of this post. Or you can keep it in the fridge to use when making other dishes at home. Either way, if you feel hungry between meals, you can warm a cup in the microwave, add a bit of lemon juice and hot sauce and I tell you what, it will fill you up until your next meal. Smile!
Approximate Cost: Under $4.00
Approximate Cooking/Prep Time: 25 Minutes
1-Rotisserie Chicken ($5.99) (Cost for this broth = $1.00)
1 Carrot (.40)
2 Celery ($.30)
1 Onions (.50)
1 Head of Garlic (.50)
1-Bunch of Cilantro ($1.00)
Salt, Pepper, Paprika and any other spices (You may have this in your pantry)
After you set aside the other chicken breast and thighs for yet more light meals, the carcass left after you divided your chicken is going now into a medium large pot.
Add a tbsp. of oil to the pot and sauté the carcass until golden. Add the carrots, celery, onion and garlic cut in half. (No need to peel these ingredients), 3 bay leaves if you have them in your pantry; some spices, salt and pepper to taste and a washed bunch of Cilantro or herbs of your choice.
Carefully, add 4 quarts of water. Bring to a boil then bring the temp down to med low and simmer for 45 minutes. Wait until cools down and pour the stock through a strainer. You will get the most beautiful and tasty broth that you see in the container. You can serve a bowl of this broth with your sandwiches also. However, if you prefer, add some cooked chopped potatoes or a cup of pasta, sliced celery and cilantro and 1 chicken thigh. You will have now a delicious light chicken soup.
