Buying boneless chicken breasts can be expensive, but you can save money if you have a little time to spare by de-boning chicken breasts yourself. It's probably a lot easier than you think.
You can also flatten out chicken breasts with a rolling pin or meat cleaver to make chicken escallops. Put the chicken between two sheets of greaseproof or plastic film and roll or pound them flat.
Bored with your usual chicken breast recipes? Thin slices of chicken or turkey breast are delicious in place of pork or veal in virtually any dish.
If you're looking for some new ideas for roasting chicken, then try one of these tips:
Do you have leftover chicken bones at the end of a meal? Don't throw them away! Make your own chicken stock with them for a pot of chicken noodle soup or other recipes that call for broth. Just boil the bones in a pot full of water with a few vegetables (carrots, celery, and onions) for an hour or so. Pull out the bones and veggies, and use it right away. Or, if you want to put away your homemade stock for a rainy day, allow the stock to cool and then seal it in an air-tight container. You can refrigerate it for up to a week. If you find that your stock isn't as flavorful as you'd like, you can add a bit of bouillon.
