Wow - talk about rubber chicken!
I took the £2 chicken from Mr T's and first removed the skin (I am on a diet and not allowed skin). Then - with a little water in the bottom and a lemon quartered in the cavity - I put it in the slow cooker for 6 hours on low.
I took all the meat off - at least 6 portions - and froze it in portions. Then I put the chicken back in the slow cooker - topped up with more water and added an onion and several carrots - and left the slow cooker on low overnight.
Result - 2 1/2 pints of beautiful chicken broth - complete with the carrots and onion plus the extra chicken bits that didn't come off the first time - ready to make soups with.
Now I know that most of you will be saying yeah - we do that already but I wanted to share my excitement with you and say thanks for all your inspiration.

fedup&skint - the pasta, salmon, peppers and cream will go well together. I would save the cheese to go with something else.

He seems to think a week is a reasonable amount of time between buying the 2 litre tubs of this, as he works it out as a daily spend of 'just' 14p+. But looking at it as a percentage of my daily 'per person' budget (if bought once a week it's 7.9% of my original budget, 8.6% of my current budget, and 9.1% of where I'm considering dropping it to!) I try and make it at least 10 days between purchases !!! (Tomorrow's 10 days since last bought, but I shouldn't need A1di for anything else - so may make him wait until Thursday )
Can you help this Forumite track some down?
