If you’re busy during the week, it can be tough to prep a new meal every night. Your to-do list is probably never-ending, and hey, who doesn’t appreciate a few spare minutes to relax?
Rachael’s got a strategy, just for situations like these. She says, “I love rollover cooking. If you cook something simple like a poached chicken, you can roll it into two meals…”
On top of the benefits to your free time, cooking a whole chicken is much less expensive than buying boneless, skinless poultry. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports an average price difference of about $2 per pound.
For the sake of time (and money!), let’s get started! Make this rollover recipe first…
