What to do with all that Chicken?

40lbs of chicken is ALOT of chicken and I was surprised when I was asked to review and giveaway some from Zaycon Foods. Thankfully I had purchased a Food Saver around Christmas when they were running some sales, but I still had to decide what to do with it all!

After a bit of thought this is what I did with our chicken:

10lbs was frozen whole. We used some of it at our Campfire Cookout with grandpa and grandma and the rest we probably end up grilling it or using it for soup. I think next time I will do something more exciting with it though.

10lbs was made into homemade chicken nuggets, baked not fried. This is a wonderful alternative to that mechanically separated chicken that is in your store bought bags.

10lbs was marinated in fajita marinade.

10lbs was done as Rosemary Garlic Chicken.

That was it! So tell me what you would do with your 40lbs of chicken if you won and then head over to my Zaycon Foods Giveaway for a chance to win 40lbs of farm fresh hormone and additive free chicken or a $35 gift card to your local grocer!

I wouldn't have a chance to do any of that. DH would have a big bbq and invite everyone we knew! LOL Wow, that's a lot of chicken!

Hmmm...I have a large freezer and 2 refrig/freezers so storing it would be ok. I would make chicken soup, chicken salad,fried chicken, baked chicken, bbq chicken...etc. :)
