WFMW - Greatest Hits Edition

Shannon is having us re-run our favorite WFMW tips. Here's a tip that I use all the time:

At our house, I am all about saving time and money. I was always annoyed when I wanted to make a recipe that needed cooked chicken because before I could put together the dish, I had to cook the chicken. Well, now I buy a jumbo pack of chicken at Sam's and roast it as soon as I get home from shopping. When the chicken has cooled off, I shred it and put it in individual freezer bags and toss them in the freezer. Now I have cooked chicken whenever I need it.

It works for me! Head over to Rocks In My Dryer for more WFMW!

really smart! I always run out and buy a rotisserie chicken but that's not always budget conducive!

That is a great idea, because I don't do the cooking at my house my hubby does, and this would make life easier for him, thank you...

I do this too, but I usually boil the chicken with celery, onions, etc. so that I have some homemade chicken stock. It is so nice to have on hand.
