This is meal planning at its simplest. Roast 2 chickens make 5 meal and eat well with ease.
Whenever I have time I like to roast 2 chickens in the oven so that we can have cooked protein to eat during the week. Here is my simple and delicious Roast Chicken Recipe
On the day I roasted the chicken I served it with pear and pepper chutney and chicken fat smashed potatoes. Here’s the recipe for the Pear and Pepper Chutney.
While the oven is on, pop in a few potatoes and make this recipe for Chicken Fat Smashed Potatoes to serve along side the chicken.
Keep tortillas and tostadas on hand for the kids (or anyone) to make an afternoon snack with roasted chicken, shredded cheese, onions and avocado. Add an egg to this for a great breakfast.
Toss some shredded chicken in a skillet with bacon and some of those carrots and potatoes you roasted earlier for a great breakfast chicken hash.
Salads great way to use roasted chicken for lunch or dinner. Here are two examples of some salads I like to make. Both are loaded with fresh, crunchy raw vegetables bit they’re very different from each other.
Make this Chopped Chicken Salad topped with bacon and avocado for lunch or dinner. You can make the veggies ahead so this will be ready to eat when you are.

Chinese Chicken Salad is another favorite recipe of mine. Shredded cabbage (nobody said you have to shred it yourself, buy it pre-shredded if you like and save some time)

Thanks so much! Chicken is so versatile, you can cook it easily and make so many dishes with it. This is just the tip of the iceberg.
