This is such an easy way to cook up a bunch of chicken to use in all sorts of recipes! You can cook the chicken in a large saucepan as well, but you’ll want to check to see if yours is large enough. We recommend adding a slow cooker when you have a chance. It doesn’t cost much money and is very useful for jobs such as this one. A Dutch oven (if you have one) will also work.
We take the meat off the bone, chop it and freeze about 2 cups in baggies. This way, we know how much to thaw out for a recipe in the future. We also save the broth that’s left and use it for soup or making rice.
