Being creative in the kitchen takes experience and time, and let’s be frank, some trial and error. As multitasking is a skill we all need to master as soon as possible if we haven’t done so yet, let’s take a look at how we can make a few dishes while only cooking once and using one chicken breast bone-in skin-on.

First off, cook the chicken breast bone-in skin-on in a large pot for about 45 minutes. Once the chicken is cooked, remove the bone and throw the skin away. Chop the meat off and leave to cool.

Add veggies of your choice to the water where you cooked the chicken, which has now basically become chicken broth, and cook until they become tender.

Season the way you like it and you’ve got yourself some healthy soup.

As for the meat, you can put it with rice you’ve cooked separately in a casserole and bake for about 30 minutes, again seasoning as you like, for a nice chicken and rice dish. Another thing you can do is use the chopped off chicken for a salad, or even both if the chicken breast is large enough.

In other words, you can prepare soup, the main dish and a salad from one chicken breast in one cooking session, saving yourself plenty of time, and essentially money.
