I have to say, I am quite happy with the results and my family loved eating the new food. Hopefully those of you reading this found some ideas that will work for your kitchens too!

  1. Whoa! I have never cooked an entire chicken. I guess I should try it (and save the broth).

  2. It's definitely worth it to make your own broth. Very tasty!
