    RFB, I know what you mean. When I was at Whole Foods the other day, I was looking longingly at the Bell & Evans and Poulet Rouge chickens. I've had both, and they were so good. They really taste like chicken I remember from years ago when my Mom used to go to the butcher shop for all of the meat. I just can't pay $2.69/lb for a whole chicken.

    jdouglas- I should... and I had a weird feeling about it before I even bought them. Not sure what they use to get them so "perfectly" trimmed and packaged... wish I could afford more of the local chickens from the farms here!!!

    I think grilled boneless chicken breasts on caesar salad. Plan B is burgers on the grill, lima beans, and junk food noodles aka my copycat recipe of noodle-roni romanoff from back in the day that I make using one of the day-glo orange cheese packets from boxed mac & cheese.

    RFB, that chicken sounds awful. Have you sent Perdue an email? You really should. They'll probably send you coupons for free chicken that you could use on a whole chicken instead.

    Chicken baked with mayo/parm topping (a favorite of my kids), veggies and probably a potato casserole of some kind (from the really cheap mixes we got during doubles).

    Chicken Picatta using BOGO chicken from HT (btw- I tried the perdue perfect portions the other day and they tasted soooo odd. Almost like they weren't even real chicken- couldn't even eat my meal :-( Also, Yellow Squash Casserole and Green Salad.

    Tonight it's spinach and cheese quesadillas with corn and carrots on the side.

    Veggie Chili
    1 can white beans
    1 can chili beans
    1 can diced tomatoes
    3-4 potatoes peeled and diced
    1 package of white chicken chili mix
    Cook potatoes 10 minutes in 2 cups water, add remaining ingredients and simmer for 5 minutes longer. So good!
