Money Monday {Chicken}

Chicken for Money Monday?  YES.  Chicken.  I wanted to share a HUGE tip with y'all if you are SERIOUS about saving money!

Let me preface this by saying that I LOVE me a good boneless, skinless chicken breast.  That being said, if you are using just chicken breasts in a recipe, feel free to buy whatever type of chicken breast you want.  IF though, you are going to shred your chicken and you could care less about white meat vs dark meat--then you NEED to buy a whole chicken, cook it, and shred it yourself!  It will save you TONS of money.

Trust me.

One of my favorite recipes to use shredded chicken in is called Mexican Chicken.  All you do is take a whole chicken, put it in the crockpot with about 2 packets of taco seasoning mix (and water).  Cook it several hours (until the chicken is done), then shred it.  You can have the shredded chicken with quesadillas, or eat it by itself with some sides like salad or refried beans.

Usually one chicken makes 2 meals for my family!



  1. I'm sure my family would love Mexican Chicken and I love that it sounds easy to fix. Going to put it on our menu for next week.

  2. Yum! That sounds delicious and easy...two of my favorites!

  3. So easy, and sounds delicious.


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one and treasure every word!
