We love going to Costco and of course each time we always bring home a $4.99 Rotisserie Chicken.  What a deal so it’s hard to resist!  My kids love my “garlic chicken” which only consists of minced garlic saute shredded Rotisserie chicken meat, 2 tbsp of Maggie seasoning and sugar/mushroom seasoning to taste.  The boys eat good whenever I serve it for dinner.   We would pack chicken for lunch the next day too.  This saute garlic chicken can also be 1 of the toppings for Xoi Man (Vietnamese savory Sticky Rice).

A good way to save even more money is to make chicken broth using the bones/carcass from this chicken.  I brought 10 cups of water, an onion, and the carcass (along with the gelatin like chicken fat on bottom of the container) to a medium boil for about 25-30 minutes.  Discard the carcass and onion, run the broth through a fine mesh sieve and you get yourself delicious homemade chicken broth!  I store the broth in 2 Chinese carryout soup containers.   If I plan to use within the week it goes in the fridge, otherwise I store them in the freezer for later use.  Depending on what you plan to use it for you can also add carrot, celery… etc when you cook the broth.  I like using this broth with egg noodle soup (such as wonton noodle soup) or chicken noodle soup.  But you can use it for anything, really!  The color is fantastic!

$4.99 can go a long way, just need some effort!
