The smell of roasted chicken conjures many memories of Sunday dinners during my childhood. It was a family favorite. When I grew up, I thought roasting a chicken was too hard and labor intensive to try on my own, so I never attempted it. Buying the individual parts of the bird seemed easier, even if the price per pound was more expensive.
But then I became aggressive about saving money on groceries and I realized how easy and economical roasting a whole chicken can be. I use the meat from one whole chicken and turn it into four dinners for my family.
