This weekend I decided I wanted to roast a chicken, rather than buying the rotisserie ones all the time. Plus, I'm trying to work on meal planning, and a lot of the sites I read say to have cubed and shredded cooked chicken in your freezer so you can just pop it out when you need it. So, off to Target we went to get a roasting pan and to Safeway to get a chicken.
I'd never roasted a chicken in my life. Until about a year ago, I'd never even TOUCHED raw chicken. Blech. But, I donned my rubber gloves, pulled the bag out of the cavity (yuck, that word makes me cringe), seasoned it up, and stuck some onion up its butt. Into the oven it went! And went. And went. Freaking thing took forever to cook! The timer finally popped out about 2 hours in.
Chris showed me how to carve it (for future reference) and a little while later I had cubed and shredded chicken sitting in my freezer. Woot!
And then. And THEN. I made stock! My gas bill's gonna be insane this month from all that cookin'.
We were so excited about it that we went out to BJ's and got ourselves a two-pack of roasters and we're gonna cook them up this week also.
