Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts - $1.29 per pound

So I've had three fabuless friends tell me this today! Thanks ladies! Thanks to Ashley for typing it all out for me so I can copy and paste!!

Here is the deal:

Cash & Carry is having an excellent deal on boneless, skinless chicken breasts. They are $1.29 per pound. There is a catch, though. You have to buy a 40 lb. box. In the box, the 40 lbs. is divided into 4 bags (10 lbs. each), and the chicken is frozen together in each bag.

Don't know what to do with 40 pounds of chicken!? Find a friend or two who would like to divy it up with you. OR, just buy the whole thing! Here's what I did last time Albies had it for $1.77/lb. I threw about 12 breasts into the crockpot with some cream of chicken soup and a little seasoning. After letting it cool, I bagged it with 2-4 breasts per bag and then put them in the freezer - great to use later for casseroles, my fave chicken noodle soup (off topic - make these easy noodles with it), or enchiladas. I took another 12 breasts, put a dry rub on them, pounded them flat, and grilled them and bagged them individually to freeze. Great to use for a quick healthy lunch for me or hubby, or thaw it out and chop up onto your salad. Then took another 32 breasts, bagged them (about 6 breasts per bag) and used a variety of marinades. Pop it into the freezer for later grilling or baking. So fun to just pull it out of the freezer in the morning, and let it thaw and marinate all day long!

Other deals at Cash & Carry through the rest of the week:

80% lean ground beef - $6.95 for 5 lb. roll ($1.38/lb.)
Extra Large Eggs - $4.95 for 5 dozen (can be divided between people if desired)
Darigold Butter Prints - $1.29/lb. (I don't believe they are broken up into quarters-just 1 lb. chunk)
Fresh Strawberries - $6.95 for 4 lbs.
Tillamook Medium Cheddar Cheese Loaf - $9.45 for 5 lbs. ($1.89 per pound)
Bananas - $0.39/lb.
Shredded Cheese - $7.97 for 5 lb. bag (Mild Cheddar or Monterey Jack)
Frozen Vegetables - $3.48 for 5 lb. bag (Corn, Green Beans, Peas, Peas and Carrots, Mixed Vegetables)

***Here is their ad***

They have two Idaho locations. 1700 W. Shoreline Drive in Boise, or 2710 Sundance Road in Nampa (do a google maps search).

These deals run through the end of the month. I did have one friend tell me to watch carefully how the product rings up.

It took me about 4 hours to have all the fun with my chicken (man, did I wash my hands a lot!). But it is sooo worth it and has saved me money (along with my freezer cooking).

Happy cooking, grilling, freezing, or whatever!

I went today and picked up a box. After I got home I opened it an realized it was chicken with bones and skins, even though the outside was labeled boneless and skinless. Totally annoyed and I have to go back. Just make sure you double check your box before you buy. :D thanks for the tip on the sale though.
