    Default I bought a chicken

    No, like a dead one from the grocery store. We aren't zoned for the living kind.

    Anyway, I'm going to cook it. Then I'm going to do something with its carcass.

    This is a big step for me. I feel super adultish today.

    homemade chicken soup starting with the carcass is super good - here's a recipe I like (ignore the vegetables only part and the bean part if you like)

    Or you can purposely leave some meat on the carcass (or accidentally if you're not that great at cutting it up - don't ask me how I know about this possibility ) and just boil it and then pull it out and shred the chicken for enchiladas. My favorite thing to do with it!

    Glad someone's feeling adultish today!

    Easiest thing to do - put in crockpot w/ 6 cups of water, some chicken bullion cubes and any other herbs you like- minced onion, ect. Let cook all day. It will spoon off the bone, when it cools, drain the water for broth

    Thanks everyone! It feels weird seeing a chicken in the fridge. I think I will try it tomorrow. I'm going to put it in the crockpot. Good use for the thing since I don't use it for anything else! I like the beer can thing. I think I'd have to get DH to put it in and take it out,mthough, lmao!
