    So I have ended up with several frozen whole chickens. I am boiling 2, and still have 2 more in the freezer.

    I have already made turkey and noodles from the leftover turkey.

    I am thinking I will shred what I am cooking and will use it for chicken enchiladas, burritos, bbq chicken.

    Any other ideas? I have a lot of bird!

    Combine a pound of orzo pasta, with a box size of chicken broth & about 2 pounds of boneless, skinless thighs cut into bite size pieces; add Italian spices or just basil depending on your fancy. Bring all the ingredients to a boil, then simmer until orzo is cooked through.

    Add in a cup of frozen peas during the last 5 minutes of cooking. When all is said & done stir in shredded parmesan cheese (I usually add a cup or so). I serve this with Italian bread & a salad.

    Another thing - throw one of those chickens in the crock pot with a quart or so of water (enough to cover all ingredients). Add in taco seasoning, cumin, chili powder to taste; add 1 lb dry pinto beans, & cook all day. I also throw in a small can of jalapeno peppers or fresh if I have some on hand. Shred the chicken & serve with tortillas, sour cream & shredded cheese.

    In 2-quart shallow baking dish arrange half the tortilla pieces. Top with half the chicken mixture. Repeat layers. Sprinkle with cheese.

    1 1/2 cups onions diced

    Cook spaghetti until al dente, drain. Saute onions. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. (at this point can bag up and freeze for another day)
    Put in a baking dish. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees about 30-40 minutes. Can top with bread crumbs and more cheese.

    I had two whole chickens this week and made I don't know how many chicken quesadillas for the kids (they live on them, it seems). Chicken sandwiches, too. You can make a yummy lemon/garllic sauce to saute chicken meat and serve over pasta: heat about 2T olive oil and brown the meat, then add 1T chopped garlic, juice from 1 lemon, and about 1/4C dry white wine. Let the mixture cook down a bit, add salt/pepper to taste, then serve over pasta. I actually used this for mahi-mahi pieces I got from Trader Joe's and served it over fettucine with broccoli florets. easy child and I LOVED it. The boys ate some of the fish, but didn't care for the pasta. What can I say, they are kinda picky sometimes.
