One of the most frugal things a Trim Healthy Mama can do is roast a whole chicken! Served with dipping sauce (our favorite is copy-cat Swiss Chalet Sauce) and a salad, a whole chicken makes a nice, easy meal for our family, with very little leftovers. Then I use the carcass to make bone broth and nothing goes to waste!
Even if I do happen to end up with leftover meat, there are so many delicious Trim Healthy Mama recipes for leftover chicken that it’s still worth roasting a whole bird! The leftover chicken breasts can be used in E and FP meals and the dark meat works perfectly in an S setting.
