Girl vs. Chicken

Last month I ordered a whole organic free range chicken from the farm that Jason used to work on, yesterday was my day to go pick it up.
I have been looking forward to this day all month!
Call me weird but I have been searching all month for all different kind of recipes and ways to stretch this bird for as many meals as possible.
I found all different kinds of recipes:
chicken pot pie
chicken noodle soup
chicken and rice
chicken tortilla soup
chicken "anything your heart desires"
you get my point..  1 chicken, lots of meals
So I started chopping some vegetable to put at the bottom of my crock pot
get the chicken out
look at the chicken
look at the crock pot
proceed to say oh crap!
my chicken is to big for my crock pot
I then go into panic mode and franticly search the kitchen like a chicken with its head cut off (no pun intended.. ok well maybe a little pun intended) for some kind of solution to just magically pop out of thin air.
I have no solution so I have to put the chicken back in the back and put in the fridge until I can figure some thing out.
There is just one small problem here, you see I cute the bag open and now it can't be closed back in the bag. Great.
I grab a freezer bag and start to jam the chicken into the freezer bag.. this is not pretty.. I was starting to get a little grossed out at how much this thing still looked like a chicken.. stop laughing.. I am used to chicken coming in boneless skinless breast.. not fully attached only missing its organs and head.
I managed to get the bird in the bag but it wouldn't zip.. darn bird! You could have laid off the calories a bit!
I double bagged it since it wouldn't zip and I put it back in the fridge until I can get to my moms and barrow her large crock pot
my poor little chicken
Hopefully I will have some lovely chicken recipes shortly following this post.


  1. To funny! Glad you got it worked out though! Can't wait to see all the yummy things you will make with your chicken!
