I like to buy chicken breasts when they're on sale (they were on sale last week for 1.98/lb and I bought 13 lbs!!), brine them in mass quantities, individually wrap them in saran wrap and freeze them in my FoodSaver bags. Then, when it's a nice day, I'll pull out a bag of 6 or so and grill them!!
(We are also infamous for buying several packages of bacon, and frying them out on the deck. Bacon freezes REALLY well, and it's perfect to pull out a slice to crumble into eggs or an omelet!)

Chicken has essential nutrients and vitamins, along with protein which assists overweight and obese people in losing weight fast. Chicken Soup has an anti-inflammatory effect. Also try chicken stuffed w/feta and spinach, I like to make a bunch, eat some hot and after it chills makes slices to eat cold. Dont eat breaded or fast food chicken, its all too fatty.
I just can't believe how much I can get out of one store bought roasted chicken. I paid $6 for it and got: 1 chicken meal for hubby and me 3 large containers of yummy chicken noodle soup chicken for sandwiches for 3 lunches. 53
