Every time when I walk by the deli section of supermarket or Costco rotisserie chickens, the sense of smell and the juicy looks of these delicious meat just always triggers my urge to buy one home and enjoy.
However, a whole chicken leftovers can be a headache especially for single people or small families. Today, I’m going to tell you what would be the BEST way to eat the rotisserie chicken and make it Bang for Your Buck!!!
COSTCO Rotisserie Chicken X 1 ------------------------ $4.99
- A small sharp knife
- Clean hands
- Steamer or slow cooker
- Separate the whole chicken into 4 main parts: Wings and drumsticks, Dark meat (Thigh), Breasts, and Bones
- For wings, drumsticks, and small parts with bones: eat them while it’s fresh and warm. These part of meat is really juicy
- Take out the dark meat from thighs, put the bones together with the body bones. Store the dark meat and chicken breasts into boxes if you can’t finish them in one meal.
- DON’T through away the juice at the bottom of the container.
- All Natural Chicken Stock: Gather all parts of bones and juice at the bottom into a medium pot. Add water to almost full, 3-4 cloves of garlic, and a few slices of ginger. Put the pot in the steamer or slow cooker to cook for about 1-2 hours.
The saved meat and chicken stock can have many uses in multiple dishes. With only 5 bucks, I can enjoy the juicy, just about right rotisserie chicken without worrying leftovers. Moreover, I can make it into 3-4 other dishes.
Note & Tips:
This is the steamer that almost every Taiwanese family have one. It’s very easy to use and have multiple purposes. All you need to do is add 1-2 cups of water into the steamer and have another pot goes inside this steamer with whatever you wish to steam. Hit the switch, and then you are good to go. I used it a lot especially for soups.
Another thing I would love to introduce is the “tea bag.” It is a paper-cloth bags originally designed for loose tea leaves. However, I normally use them for marinating, stewing, or making soup or stock. For example, I put ginger and garlic into this small bag for my chicken stock this time to add more flavor to the soup but keep the broth clear.
Later on in the following posts, I will have a couple recipes to show some examples to use the meat and the stock I make today. Stay Tuned and Enjoy~ 🙂
