Don't throw away those chicken bones!I cooked a whole chicken on Saturday in the crock pot, with an onion, some garlic, fresh herbs from the garden, and about 2 cups of water. I carved enough of the meat to make chicken and dumplings. This big pot of soup lasted us two lunches and three dinners.
Today (Tuesday), I de-boned the chicken, getting every last bit of meat off the bones. I was able to get 4 cups of meat from the leftover whole chicken (in the container on the right).
