Recipes With Roasted Chicken: 5 Easy Meals
Generously rub the chicken with salt, pepper, fragrant garlic, and then bake it until crisp — a classic, foolproof recipe for cooking delicious poultry. However, Cook It encourages you to take it a step further: use parts of baked chicken for cooking other dishes. Roasting a whole chicken is perfect for meal prep. See how easy it is to make these five recipes with roasted chicken. Also provided a recipe for oven-roasted spicy chicken with potatoes.
To begin with, remove the skin from the baked chicken. Cut it into parts: separate the wings, legs, fillets. Separate the shanks from the chicken thighs.
How To Get Five Meals From One Chicken
1. Fragrant Chicken Broth From Bones
Place the carcass in a pot and cover it with 35 fl oz (1 l) of water. Add 2–3 allspice berries, bay leaf, 1 whole peeled carrot, celery stalk, washed, unpeeled onion, a couple of garlic cloves. Cook for 1 ½–2 hours. Strain the finished broth, store it in the refrigerator.
2. Appetizing Wings and Thighs
Transfer the baked chicken parts to a small baking dish, generously brush with BBQ tomato sauce. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, put in the oven for 5 minutes to brown at 360 °F.
3. Crispy Chips
Place chicken skin on a baking sheet in one layer. Season with salt and pepper, and bake at 360 °F for 10 minutes.
4. Chicken Breast Sandwich
Spread a slice of bread with a thin layer of mayonnaise. Put lettuce, a couple of tomato slices, and a few slices of thinly cut chicken breast on top. Cover with a second slice of bread.
5. Ramen With Chicken
Place cooked noodles in a deep bowl, add finely chopped celery and chili. Tear the chicken thigh meat into fibers and add to the rest of the ingredients. Season to taste, cover with hot broth.
