You can roast chicken and turkey from frozen, as long as you aren't doing stuffing. Start it on a high (275-400 degrees) for a short time (an hour for turkey; I do about 30 minutes for a big chicken), then turn it down to your usual roasting temp. Works every time! :)

#1 cooked chicken recipe in our house: wrapped in tortillas with guacamole (or sliced avocado)! Cheese, cilantro, onions, salsa are additional inclusions to taste. We like to make a Mexican 'slaw' with cabbage, red onion, and cilantro (a lot) tossed with lime juice and a little salt. It tops various sorts of things wrapped in tortillas and is also pretty good eaten straight.

Also good for cooked chicken - buffalo chicken salads or sandwiches. Yes, there is a lot of salt in buffalo sauce, but this is easily adaptable to the spice tolerance of many family members by adding more or less sauce.

Shredded chicken (hot or cold) tossed with pesto and then served with mozzarella and tomato slices, with pasts, or as toasted subs.

So versatile!

BTW - have I ever shared the black bean and sweet potato burrito with you? It's good, and you could add chicken to it or not.


No, Christy, I could probably derive it from first principles, but go ahead and share. Put it on your blog if you want and I'll link.

We're part of a meat CSA that gives us 2 chickens a month, so I appreciate the list. I'm a big fan of America's Test Kitchen and they say it isn't safe to put a whole chicken in the crock pot because you can't be sure it reaches a high enough temp to be safe quick enough. So I've been cutting the chicken into parts and baking it, taking parts out as they finish (the longest is under an hour), then taking the meat off the bones. Roasting rarely works well here--it seems like it always takes longer than it should and is unevenly cooked. But baking has gone well.

I left a message for your dairy awhile ago and they didn't get back to me. I should try them again, particularly since the local co-ops just raised their milk prices.
