Lol, sounds funny but you'll get what i mean.

Not sure if anyone does this, but just in case you don't then here is a tip for you.

Don'tyou hate when there isn't enough chicken in your meal and you already have 3 pieces?? Well, i found if you chop up one piece super small, to almost a mince, that you will have bits of chicken in every bite.

I used to have to make 2 pieces of chicken for every meal and then at least one more if i had company. I found that when i chopped it pretty small, it was easier and faster to cook and everyone had chicken in every bite!

So next time you make a dish with chicken in it, try using just one piece and see how far it goes.

I put a bag of chicken breasts in the crock pot each week.  After cooking several hours I shred them and put in a container in the fridge.  Then I have shredded chicken for several different recipes.

 That is a great tip. Another way  to stretch is to cut the chicken breasts in half. Basically like a butterfly cut but all the way through. They so often put only 3 in the package but this way it is like having 6.
