Using One Whole Chicken To Create Four Different Meals

I often buy whole chickens and create an entire menu plan around 1 chicken, using it in a variety of different ways to create 4-5 meals from one chicken.

If you’d rather not deal with cutting up the chicken into different parts, you can simply use this menu suggestion to buy the appropriate chicken parts and use chicken as your main protein for different weeks.
