Cook One Chicken, Enjoy it 7 Ways!

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…

Poached Chicken with Lemon and Garlic

    I really enjoy Rachael Ray Oatmeal and I used to purchase it at walmart in Dayton, Ohio, but they no longer carry it. Where can I find it?

      Hi Veda!
      Definitely speak to your store manager to request the oatmeal, if it’s not on shelves any longer. You can grab it on Amazon, our producer, Colavita. Hope this helps! – Jenn, RachaelRay.com

    while watching Rachel Ray televised on channel 58in Milwlaukee, WI yesterday (May 26th) It was a segment of the top 10 downloaded recipes for the year, but didn’t mention what year that was.
    They made a Buffalo Chicken Potato casserole. Tried to find it on the web site, but haven’t had any luck.
    If you can find it….can you e-mail it to me???
    Thanks for your help.

    My new favorite rollover recipe is Chopstick Chicken Salad, recipe found on wrapper of Hidden Valley Light Ranch dressing. I subbed pasta for the lettuce, and used pecans instead of almonds, but all other ingredients are same. Took this to a get-together and it was a hit.
