If you want to serve family and friends a juicy roasted chicken, then this Mexican spiced chicken with fresh mango salsa is for you.
When I find whole chickens on sale, you can bet I buy as many as my freezer can hold. There isn’t a more thrifty purchase in the grocery store. This chicken was $4 for the whole bird (naturally fed and hormone free – even better!).
I’ll serve roasted chicken the first night, chicken fajitas the next night, have chicken salad for lunch, and then boil up the remains for my own chicken broth. Freeze the broth, and I’m good as gold for my next chicken soup! You get the idea.
If you think roasting a chicken and making chicken broth is time-consuming, you would be wrong. I’m off doing other things while the chicken roasts, or cooks down into a broth.
And if you’re making chicken fajitas? This Mexican roasted chicken recipe adds a spicy kick to your fajitas. Don’t forget the mango salsa, and be sure to use fresh cilantro. It’s cheap too – 69 cents at my local Albertson’s grocery store.
I count four meals out of one chicken. I’m thinking that’s not a whole lot of work for four family pleasing meals.
