Using up the last of the chicken, I decided to make a chicken spread for lunch tomorrow. I took what was left from tonight's chicken dinner and added it to my food processor along with a block of cream cheese, bought on sale, and some green olives. I whipped this up to a good spreading consistency and will have this for lunch tomorrow on crackers. There is enough for at least three people to have lunch with this chicken spread.
I think that without a doubt, I have shown you how to stretch chicken this week to last for four or more meals. I started out with eight chicken breasts on Tuesday and served them for dinner to four people, and then made Lemon Pepper Chicken on Wednesday and served that to four people. Tonight, I made Chicken Tacos for two people, and now have enough left for three people for lunch tomorrow. The 8 chicken breasts cost me $10, and I was able to stretch it over four different meals.
