Chicken is a great source of protein on a budget, plus it tastes exactly like chicken. If you use these cost-saving tricks you can get the most out of a whole chicken, using it’s every part, enjoying it for several meals, over many days.

Bonus – kids usually love chicken, too.

Exhaust a chicken. Get a whole chicken frozen from the store or raise chickens and render them for your food when ready. You can eat the meat, save the fat for cooking, drink the water it boils in, and even grind the bones for broth-tea.

Safety first with chicken as you can die or kill others from salmonella poisoning. Easily preventable by being clean.
