Classic chicken dinner. 12/12/22

Chicken breast with gravy, mashed butternut squash/potato, broccoli

We went to Costco today and bought one of their rotisserie chickens. What a deal for $4.99! I should buy one every time we go. When we got home I took the chicken apart. I knew John would like a leg and thigh while I would prefer white meat. After I deconstructed the bird I put the carcass in a pot with some water and thyme and cooked it for an hour.

At dinner prep John took our pieces from the fridge and warmed them slowly in a gravy made from the stock I made earlier. I cooked the potatoes and squash together in the Instant Pot for 10 minutes on high and then mashed them. The broccoli was simply steamed.

What a good dinner! And so economical! Plus I have more than half a chicken left! The Costco chicken, twice the size for almost half the price of a grocery store rotisserie chicken.
