Hey everybody! I’m so excited to introduce you to a NEW SERIES on Chelsea’s Messy Apron: “Three Meals with 1 Rotisserie Rooster”. The thought is that this, I’ll be taking a rotisserie hen (you realize those you should purchase pre-cooked and ready-to-eat within the retailer?) to create Three completely different meals. Every meal might be distinctive, however the group of three meals will all share an analogous theme…for instance at the moment we’re specializing in BBQ Rooster. If you happen to’ve been following my weblog for any time period you’ve possible observed that I attempt to make recipes that style nice, are simple (and fast!) to make, and don’t break the financial institution. What higher means to do that than with pre-cooked hen you need to use in three separate meals that ALSO use comparable elements?

  • Recipes will use widespread, every-day elements
  • Every meal will usually feed a household of 4 (2 adults + 2 youngsters), however might be simple to scale up for bigger households
  • I’ll embrace a free grocery checklist to make buying the elements for the meals easy
  • Comparable elements might be used for every meal in a given group, so meals waste could be minimized (keep in mind that cilantro you obtain for only one meal? Now you’ll get to make use of it for 3 meals!)
  • Every meal can have it’s personal picture and its personal recipe card (good should you simply wish to make one of many recipes, however not all 3!)

So with that, let’s get proper to the recipes. On the high of this publish is a fast video overview (1 min) of those three recipes and beneath is a picture and recipe for every. On the very finish of the publish is the procuring checklist.
