I wanted to tell you the way we most often use our rope sausages - I use them in spaghetti, barbecued kebabs, and boiled dinner with cabbage, potatoes, and carrots. The Hillshire Farm and John Morrell websites have lots of ideas for them too. I get the John Morrell ones for free frequently!

My mom fed 8 growing kids (5 teenage boys) on one income. She used fryer chickens all the time. She threw the whole thing in a stock pot (she might cut the wings, thighs and drumsticks off first). Then cover with water. Add chunks of onion celery and carrot. I like to throw in a little garlic and basil, salt and pepper, too. Simmer until the meat is done cooking. Pull out the chicken and let it cool on a cookie sheet. Strain the broth and freeze in one cup portions. Bone the chicken and freeze in 1 or 2 cup portions. You know have super moist and tender "chopped, cooked chicken" for all kinds of meals and super yummy chicken broth in your freezer. We usually had chicken noodle soup for dinner on the nights my mom did this. Hope that helps!!

My mom often uses the rope sausage in thicker spaghetti sauce and then on a roll as a sandwich sort of thing. Really good.

Melissa said...

We use the rope sausage cut up in red beans and rice or I will just cut it into bite sized pieces and heat it up with some BBQ sauce and serve with french fries or a salad for a light dinner.

I cut up the fryer chicken and put it in a crock pot over night with about 1-2 cups of water. Then I separate the chicken from the bones and put in a big zip lock bag and freeze. Then we have frozen cooked shredded chicken ready to use.

I use the sausage in an awesome slow cooker stew called cassoulet http://www.bhg.com/recipe/poultry/easy-cassoulet/

I LOVE whole chickens. You can cook 2 in a 7 qt crockpot if they're skinned (otherwise the fat will run over the top). Rub with spices of your choice; I do rosemary, thyme, pepper, salt and cook for about 8-10 hours on low, pick out all the meat, and then put the bones and parts back in the crock with a few cups of water, some garlic and onion, and cook for 12 hours on low. Voila, AWESOME homemade chicken broth. I freeze it in 1 cup cubes.

Also, Rachael Ray has a great 5 dinners in one day thing where you cook a few chickens and make 5 meals, 1 for today and the other for the fridge (or freezer). I only love the enchiladas and the pot pie, so we make 2 of each of those and freeze them. http://www.rachaelray.com/recipe.php?recipe_id=210

I make my own rotisserie chickens in the crockpot. First, make 4-5, 2inch balls of foil and place them in the bottom of the crock pot. This keeps the chicken out of any fat or juice in the bottom of the crockpot. Season the whole chicken and place it on the balls of foil. Cook on high for 4-6 hours or low for 8.

Nice advise Tracy !! I hate when your meat in cooked in fat for hours. You are great. Thanks!!!
